] On the subject of Knightly marrying Jane. Mrs. Weston says........he is so very much occupied by the idea of not being in love with her, that I should not wonder if it were to end in his being so at last. Do not beat me
] By this does she mean----- Mark my words or something to that effect? It's odd sounding.
I believe she is saying that he has obviously spent a lot of time thinking about Jane Fairfax, and that he may be falling in love without realizing it. He protests too much to be indifferent, is Mrs Weston's reasoning.
