1 Their children had more modern minds and manners.
2 His two other children were of very inferior value.
3 He was a married man, and without children; the very state to be wished for.
4 The holidays, however, are over at last: I believe no children ever had such long ones.
5 As to the management of their children, his theory was much better than his wife's, and his practice not so bad.
6 But you, yourself, brought Mrs Harville, her sister, her cousin, and three children, round from Portsmouth to Plymouth.

8 It was with the daughter of Mr Shepherd, who had returned, after an unprosperous marriage, to her father's house, with the additional burden of two children.
9 Immediately surrounding Mrs Musgrove were the little Harvilles, whom she was sedulously guarding from the tyranny of the two children from the Cottage, expressly arrived to amuse them.
10 The Musgroves came back to receive their happy boys and girls from school, bringing with them Mrs Harville's little children, to improve the noise of Uppercross, and lessen that of Lyme.
11 She looked down very decidedly upon the Hayters, and thought it would be quite a misfortune to have the existing connection between the families renewed--very sad for herself and her children.
