fine thing for our girls. How so? How can it affect them, My dear Mr Bennet, replied his wife. How can you be so tiresome? You must know that I am thinking of his marrying one of them. Is that his design in settling here? Design nonsense? How can you talk so? But it is very likely that he may fall in love with one of them, and therefore you must visit him as soon as he comes. I see no occasion for that. You and the girls may go, or you may send them by themselves, which perhaps will be still better for as you are, as handsome as any of them. Mr Bingley may like you Best of all the party, my dear. You flatter me. I certainly have had my share of beauty, but I do not pretend to be anything extraordinary. Now, when a woman has five grown up daughters, she ought to give over thinking of her own beauty. In such cases a woman has not often much beauty to think of. But, my dear, you must go and see Mr Bingley as he comes into the neighborhood. It is more than I engage, for, I assure you. But consider your daughter's only think about. Only think what an establishment it would be for one of them, Sir. William and Lady Lucas are determined to go merrily on that account, for in general, you know they visit no newcomers. Indeed, you must go, for it will be impossible for us to visit him if you do not. You are over scrupulous. Surely I dare say Mr Bingley will be very glad to see you, and I will send a few lines by you to assure him of my hearty consent to his marrying whichever he chooses of the girls, though I must throw in a good word for my little Lizzy. I desire you do no such thing. Lizzie is not a bit better than the others, and and I am sure she is not half so handsome, Miss jane, nor half so good humored as lydia. But you are always giving her the preference. They are none of them much to recommend them, replied he. They are all silly and ignorant like other girls. But lizzie has something more of quickness than her sisters.
