There is a very short snippet from P&P in the last chapter of Venetia. Venetia, the main character, uses the phrase,"a consummation devoutly to be wished!", and it is typeset in itallics. (She's actually in conversation with her love, Damerel, who is trying to tell her that she should, and will , soon forget him. She replies that everyone assumes that her forgetting him is the consummation..etc.,and she of course, doesn't want to forget him. He is, of course, a rake with a conscience, and doesn't want to ruin her.)
In re-reading this, I'm not sure it makes sense.....
