1 First of all, he asked Miss Lucas.
2 She mentioned this to her friend Miss Lucas.
3 "It will be her turn soon to be teased," said Miss Lucas.
4 It was at Sir William Lucas's, where a large party were assembled.
5 Lady Lucas herself has often said so, and envied me Jane's beauty.
6 "You began the evening well, Charlotte," said Mrs. Bennet with civil self-command to Miss Lucas.
7 Lady Lucas was a very good kind of woman, not too clever to be a valuable neighbour to Mrs. Bennet.
8 His pride," said Miss Lucas, "does not offend me so much as pride often does, because there is an excuse for it.
9 If I were as rich as Mr. Darcy," cried a young Lucas, who came with his sisters, "I should not care how proud I was.
10 Sir William and Lady Lucas are determined to go, merely on that account, for in general, you know, they visit no newcomers.
11 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.
12 Sir William Lucas had been formerly in trade in Meryton, where he had made a tolerable fortune, and risen to the honour of knighthood by an address to the king during his mayoralty.
13 At that moment, Sir William Lucas appeared close to them, meaning to pass through the set to the other side of the room; but on perceiving Mr. Darcy, he stopped with a bow of superior courtesy to compliment him on his dancing and his partner.
14 Lady Lucas quieted her fears a little by starting the idea of his being gone to London only to get a large party for the ball; and a report soon followed that Mr. Bingley was to bring twelve ladies and seven gentlemen with him to the assembly.
15 When those dances were over, she returned to Charlotte Lucas, and was in conversation with her, when she found herself suddenly addressed by Mr. Darcy who took her so much by surprise in his application for her hand, that, without knowing what she did, she accepted him.
16 But Elizabeth was not formed for ill-humour; and though every prospect of her own was destroyed for the evening, it could not dwell long on her spirits; and having told all her griefs to Charlotte Lucas, whom she had not seen for a week, she was soon able to make a voluntary transition to the oddities of her cousin, and to point him out to her particular notice.
17 It had given him a disgust to his business, and to his residence in a small market town; and, in quitting them both, he had removed with his family to a house about a mile from Meryton, denominated from that period Lucas Lodge, where he could think with pleasure of his own importance, and, unshackled by business, occupy himself solely in being civil to all the world.
