|This passage I like (not particularly a zinger, though) ;-)

in consequence of the missive, And more of warped Mrs. Ferrars, penned by Barb JA
Mrs. Jennings's prophecies, though rather jumbled together, were chiefly fulfilled; for she was able to visit Edward and his wife in their Parsonage by Michaelmas, and she found in Elinor and her husband, as she really believed, one of the happiest [couples] in the world. They had in fact nothing to wish for, but the marriage of Colonel Brandon and Marianne, and rather better pasturage for their cows.
At first, I was thinking the opinion of the "pasturage for their cows" was E&E's own, but I see that the whole passage was written from Mrs. Jenning's POV.
We never get anyone else's view on the matter - not the omniscient narrator or anything! But I still like the passage, and think it's more true than not! :D
and I'm not sure what this quite meant...
Elinor broke through the first positive resolution (whose?? hers or Edward's - who always seemed to be delaying marriage for that sort of thing...?)
