] It looks like that only two people can ride in it and one has to guide the ponies. I suspect that Miss Anne De Bourgh was allowed to drive her phaeton around the park only and only in the company of Miss Jenkins. I doubt if Lady Catherine would have allowed her to drive about the village in her phaeton, either with or without Miss Jenkins.
I forgot about a phaeton being a two-person deal. Would Anne herself have touched the reins (being a sickly, delicate creature that she is--probably trying to kill herself to get out of Rosings :-P) or would that have been her companion's job?
