Mrs Dashwood, who could not think a man five years younger than herself so exceedingly ancient as he appeared to the youthful fancy of her daughter, ventured to clear Mrs Jennings from the probability of wishing to throw ridicule on his age. But at least Mama, you can't deny the absurdity of the accusation, though you may not think it intentionally ill natured. Colonel Brandon is certainly younger than Mrs Jennings, but he's hold enough to be my father. And if you ever animated enough to be in love, must have long outlived every sensation of the kind. It's too ridiculous. When is a man to be safe from such wit? If age and infirmity will not protect him? Infirmity said it enough. Do you call Colonel Brandon infirm? I can easily suppose that his age may appear much greater to youth into my mother, but you can hardly deceive yourself as to his having the use of his limbs. Did you not hear him complain of the rheumatism? Andi is not that the Communist infirmity of declining life. My dearest child, said her mother, laughing. At this rate, you must be in continual terror of my decay, and it must seem to you a miracle that my life has been extended to the advanced age of 40. Mama, you are not doing me justice. I know very well that Colonel Brandon is not old enough to make his friends yet apprehensive of losing him in the course of nature, he may live 20 years longer, but 35 has nothing to do with matrimony. Perhaps said Elena, 35 17 had better not have anything to do with matter money together. But if there should, by any chance, happen to be a woman who is single at seven and 20 I should not think Colonel Brandon's being 35 any objection days marrying her.
