'But I tell you what, my dears,' she said brightly
, 'I'm giving a little supper party for some of the officers tomorrow. I'll ask Mr Philips to visit Mr Wickham and invite him to come too. Will you all come as well?'

The girls were delighted
and agreed at once to this arrangement
, and the whole group walked back to Longbourn, happily discussing the enjoyable evening they were going to have. Mr Collins had been very impressed with Mrs Philips'politeness
, and when they reached Longbourn, he complimented
Mrs Bennet on her sister's elegance
and charming manners.
eg: What do you think of this arrangement ?

The next evening the carriage
took him and his five cousins to Meryton, and the girls had the pleasure of hearing, as they entered the hall, that Mr Wickham had accepted their uncle's invitation
, and was at that moment in the house.
eg: I have sent them a formal invitation.
When Mr Collins was shown into the sitting-room, and had time to look around and admire
it, he said immediately
to Mrs Philips, 'Madam, I must compliment
you on the size and furniture of this room Really, I could almost imagine myself in the smaller summer breakfast room at Rosings!'
eg: Her guests complimented her on her cooking.
This remark did not at first please his hostess very much, but when she heard from him what Rosings was, and who its owner was, and how much Lady Latherine's furniture cost, she realized what a great compliment it was. During the evening Mr Collins found Mrs Philips a kind and attentive
listener, which was fortunate
, as the Bennet girls could not bring themselves to listen to him any longer.
