In that respect how unlike dear Mrs. Elton, who wants to be wiser and wittier than all the world! I wonder how she speaks of the Coles-- what she calls them! How can she find any appellation56 for them, deep enough in familiar vulgarity? She calls you, Knightley--what can she do for Mr. Cole? And so I am not to be surprized that Jane Fairfax accepts her civilities and consents to be with her. Mrs. Weston, your argument weighs most with me. I can much more readily enter into the temptation of getting away from Miss Bates, than I can believe in the triumph of Miss Fairfax;s mind over Mrs. Elton. I have no faith in Mrs. Elton;s acknowledging herself the inferior in thought, word, or deed; or in her being under any restraint beyond her own scanty57 rule of good-breeding. I cannot imagine that she will not be continually insulting her visitor with praise, encouragement, and offers of service; that she will not be continually detailing her magnificent intentions, from the procuring58 her a permanent situation to the including her in those delightful exploring parties which are to take place in the barouche-landau. 2021-05-07 12:21:01
