This caused general astonishment, and he had the pleasure of being eagerly questioned by his wife and five daughters all at the same time. Having amused himself for some time with their curiosity,he finally explained.‘I have recently received a letter from my cousin,Mr Collins,who,as you know,will inherit all my property when I die, and may throw you out of this house as soon as he wants.’

  ‘Oh, my dear!’cried his wife.‘Please don't mention that hateful man. It's the hardest thing in the world to accept the fact that your property is not left to your own children, and I'm sure, if I were you, I'd have tried to do something about it.’

  Jane and Elizabeth tried to explain the legal situation to her again.They had often attempted to do this before.But it was a matter which Mrs Bennet refused to understand, and she con- tinued to complain bitterly about Mr Collins.

  ‘It certainly is most unjust,’agreed Mr Bennet,‘and noth- ing can clear Mr Collins from the guilt of inheriting this house.But if you listen while I read his letter to you,you may perhaps be a little softened by his manner of expressing himself.’
