Mr Bennett was among the earliest of those who waited on Mr Bingley. He had always intended to visit him, though to the last, always assuring his wife that he should not go until the evening after the visit was paid. She had no knowledge of it. It was then disclosed in the following manner. Observing his second daughter employed in trimming hat, he suddenly addressed her with I hope Mr Bingley will like it. Lizzie, We are not in a way to know what Mr Bingley likes, said her mother resentful. E since we are not to visit. But you forget Mama said Elizabeth, that we shall meet him at the assembly's on that Mrs Long promised to introduce him. I do not believe Mrs Long will do any such thing. She has two nieces off her own. She is a selfish, hypocritical woman. And I have no opinion off her. No more have I said Mr Bennett on DH. I am glad to find the two. Do not depend on her serving you, Mrs Bennet. Danger not to make any reply but unable to contain herself. Began scolding one of her daughters. Don't keep coughing so kitty for heaven's sake have a little compassion on my nerves. You tear them to pieces. Kitty has no discretion in her coughs, said her father a few times the meal. I do not cough for my own amusement, replied Kitty. Frightfully, When is your next bull to be Lizzie? Tomorrow fortnight? Aye, so it is cried. Her mother and Mrs Long does not come back to the day before, so it will be impossible for her to introduce him, for she will not know him herself. Then, my dear, you may have the advantage of your friend and introduce Mr Bingley to her. Impossible, Mr Bennett. Impossible when I am not acquainted with him myself. How can you be so teasing? I only your circumspection. A fortnight's acquaintance is certainly very little. One cannot know what a man really is by the end of a fortnight, but if we do not venture, somebody else will. And after all, Mrs Long and her nieces must stand their chance and therefore, as she will think it, an act of kindness. If you decline the office, I will take it on myself. The girl stared at their father, Mrs Bennet said, only nonsense, nonsense. What could be the meaning of that emphatic exclamation? Cried. He do you consider the forms of introduction and the stress that is laid on them is nonsense. I cannot quite agree with you there. What you say, Mary for you are a young lady of deep reflection. I know and read great books and make extracts. Mary wish to say something sensible, but knew not how. While Mary is adjusting her ideas, he continued. Let us return to Mr Bingley. I am sick off! Mr Bingley corroded his wife. I am sorry to hear that. But why did not you tell me that before? If I had known as much this morning, I certainly would not have called on him. It is very unlucky. But as I have actually paid the visit, we cannot escape the acquaintance. Now the astonishment of the ladies was just what he wished that of Mrs Bennett. Perhaps surpassing the rest
