The Dashwoods gave up their Carriage when they moved from Norland. How do they get about? We see the sisters walking about the country side, but what about when winter arrives? The Middletons convey them to and from parties using their carriages (like the Bates and JF in "Emma"). What about the servants? Where would they acquire the produce and meat and other supplies for the house and kitchen? There don't seem to be any mention of markets or butcher shops. Would they hitch rides with haycarts or would they have a small donkey cart or just walk everywhere? Thoughts?
