Lady Catherine doesn't seem to leave him much to do,IMHO save write his sermon( and I suppose she directs him in that,just as she interferes with everything else......All he has to do is report any goings on to her and off she goes to settle matters herself ;-)
Elizabeth soon perceived that, though this great lady was not in the commission of the peace for the county, she was a most active magistrate in her own parish, the minutest concerns of which were carried to her by Mr. Collins; and whenever any of the cottagers were disposed to be quarrelsome, discontented, or too poor, she sallied forth into the village to settle their differences, silence their complaints, and scold them into harmony and plenty.
