Mr Bennet had a comfortable income of two thousand a year, and a pleasant house in Longbourn. But, unfortu- nately for his daughters, after his death all his property would pass to a distant male relation.Mrs Bennet's father had been a lawyer,and had only left his daughter a small amount of money. She had a brother who owned shops in London, and she also had a sister, married to a Mr Philips. He had been her fa- ther's clerk,and now carried on his late employer's business.

  Mr and Mrs Philips lived in Meryton, which was only a kilo- metre or so from the village of Longbourn.It was a most con- venient distance for the Bennet girls, who were usually tempted there three or four times a week,to visit their aunt or a dress- maker who lived opposite.The youngest daughters, Kitty and Lydia,were particularly regular visitors.Their minds were more vacant than their sisters,’and if no better entertainment was available,a walk to Meryton always provided some amuse- ment, as well as interesting local news from their aunt.
