1 "I believe we must be satisfied with less," said Maria.
2 Julia Bertram was only twelve, and Maria but a year older.
3 Maria's notions on the subject were more confused and indistinct.
4 Maria, Julia, Henry Crawford, and Mr. Yates were in the billiard-room.
5 Besides," said Maria, "I know that Mr. Crawford depends upon taking us.
6 Yes," added Maria, "and her spirits are as good, and she has the same energy of character.
7 Maria was just discontented enough to say directly, "I think you have done pretty well yourself, ma'am."
8 Julia might be justified in so doing by the hints of Mrs. Grant, inclined to credit what she wished, and Maria by the hints of Mr. Crawford himself.
9 That would not be a very handsome reason for using Mr. Crawford's," said Maria; "but the truth is, that Wilcox is a stupid old fellow, and does not know how to drive.
10 There was no positive ill-nature in Maria or Julia; and though Fanny was often mortified by their treatment of her, she thought too lowly of her own claims to feel injured by it.
11 She had two sisters to be benefited by her elevation; and such of their acquaintance as thought Miss Ward and Miss Frances quite as handsome as Miss Maria, did not scruple to predict their marrying with almost equal advantage.
