"I have none of the usual inducements of women to marry...I believe few married women are half as much mistress of their husband's house, as I am of Hartfield; and never, never could I expect to be so truly beloved and important; so always first and always right in a man's eyes as I am in my father's"

(qd. by Emma, 82)
