2 I am confident that she would have performed delightfully.
3 Lady Catherine continued her remarks on Elizabeth's performance, mixing with them many instructions on execution and taste.
4 She performed her part indeed without much graciousness, but Mrs. Bennet was satisfied, and soon afterwards ordered her carriage.
