Mrs. Bennet, __________1___________.
"_________2_________. The country is a vast deal pleasanter, is it not, Mr. Bingley?"
"When I am in the country, " he replied, "I never wish to leave it; and when I am in town it is pretty much the same. _________3__________. "
"Aye--that is because you have the right disposition. But that gentleman, " looking at Darcy, "seemed to think the country was nothing at all. "
"Indeed, Mamma, you are mistaken, " said Elizabeth, blushing for her mother. "You quite mistook Mr. Darcy. _________4__________. "
"Certainly, my dear, nobody said there were; ________5________. I know we dine with four-and-twenty families. "
_________6_________. Elizabeth, for the sake of saying something that might turn her mother's thoughts, now asked her if Charlotte Lucas had been at Longbourn since HER coming away.
"Yes, she called yesterday with her father. What an agreeable man Sir William is, Mr. Bingley, is not he? So much the man of fashion! So genteel and so easy! He had always something to say to everybody. __________7___________. "
"Did Charlotte dine with you?"
"No, she would go home. The Lucases are a very good sort of girls, I assure you. It is a pity they are not handsome! Not that I think Charlotte so VERY plain--but then she is our particular friend."
"________8_________. ", said Bingley.
"Oh! dear, yes; but you must own she is very plain. Lady Lucas herself has often said so, and envied me Jane's beauty. ________9________. It is what everybody says. I do not trust my own partiality.
