in consequence of the missive, Was Mrs. Dashwood doing her daughters a disservice?, penned by Frances Anne
:D If Sir John cannot help them to his carriage he has other tricks up his sleeve. ;D If they were tenants of anyone other than Sir John, I would say Mrs. Dashwood’s pride might have kept her daughters from some new and perhaps better suited acquaintances. However, as they are so engaged to have little leisure for serious employment and I suspect much of it is arranged by Sir John I feel certain the Dashwood ladies will meet everyone worth meeting in the country and even some who are not—after all Sir John promised in Chapter 7:
They would see, he said, only one gentleman there besides himself; a particular friend who was staying at the park, but who was neither very young nor very gay. He hoped they would all excuse the smallness of the party, and could assure them it should never happen so again. He had been to several families that morning, in hopes of procuring some addition to their number, but it was moonlight, and every body was full of engagements.
