Westonlast night. And as for James, you may be very sure he will always likegoing to Randalls, because of his daughter's being housemaid there. I only doubt whether he will ever take us anywhere else.

That wasyour doing, papa. You got Hannah that good place. Nobody thoughtof Hannah till you mentioned her—James is so obliged to you! It was very lucky, for I wouldnot have had poor James think himself slighted upon any account;and I am sure she will make a very good servant: she is a civil,pretty-spoken girl; I have a great opinion of her. Whenever I see her,she always curtseys and asks me how I do, in a very pretty manner;and when you have had her here to do needlework, I observe shealways turns the lock of the door the right way and never bangs it.
I am sure she will be an excellent servant; and it will be a greatcomfort to poor Miss Taylor to have somebody about her that she isused to see. Whenever James goes over to see his daughter, you know,she will be hearing of us. He will be able to tell her how weall are. The backgammon-table was placed; but a visitor immediately afterwardswalked in and made it unnecessary. Knightley, a sensible man about seven or eight-and-thirty, was notonly a very old and intimate friend of the family, but particularlyconnected with it, as the elder brother of Isabella's husband. He lived about a mile from Highbury, was a frequent visitor,and always welcome, and at this time more welcome than usual,as coming directly from their mutual connexions in London.
He hadreturned to a late dinner, after some days' absence, and now walkedup to Hartfield to say that all were well in Brunswick Square. It was a happy circumstance, and animated Mr. Woodhouse for some time. Knightley had a cheerful manner, which always did him good;and his many inquiries after "poor Isabella" and her children wereanswered most satisfactorily. When this was over, Mr. Woodhousegratefully observed, "It is very kind of you, Mr. Knightley, to comeout at this late hour to call upon us.
I am afraid you must havehad a shocking walk. It is a beautiful moonlight night; and so mildthat I must draw back from your great fire. I wish you maynot catch cold. Look at my shoes. Not a speck on them. It rained dreadfully hard for half an hourwhile we were at breakfast.
I wanted them to put off the wedding. Being pretty well awareof what sort of joy you must both be feeling, I have been in no hurrywith my congratulations; but I hope it all went off tolerably well. How did you all behave? Who cried most?
Woodhouse,with a sigh. You do not think I could mean you , or supposeMr. Knightley to mean you. What a horrible idea! Oh no! I meantonly myself. Knightley loves to find fault with me, you know—in a joke—it is all a joke. We always say what we like to one another. Knightley, in fact, was one of the few people who could seefaults in Emma Woodhouse, and the only one who ever told her of them:and though this was not particularly agreeable to Emma herself,she knew it would be so much less so to her father, that she wouldnot have him really suspect such a circumstance as her not beingthought perfect by every body.
Knightley, "but Imeant no reflection on any body. Miss Taylor has been usedto have two persons to please; she will now have but one. The chances are that she must be a gainer. Every body was punctual, every body in theirbest looks: not a tear, and hardly a long face to be seen. Oh no;we all felt that we were going to be only half a mile apart,and were sure of meeting every day. Knightley, she is really very sorry to lose poor Miss Taylor,and I am sure she will miss her more than she thinks for.
Every friend of Miss Taylor must be glad to have her so happilymarried.
I made the match, you know, four years ago; and to have it take place,and be proved in the right, when so many people said Mr. Weston wouldnever marry again, may comfort me for any thing. Knightley shook his head at her. Her father fondly replied,"Ah! Pray do not make anymore matches. It is the greatest amusement in the world! Andafter such success, you know! Weston wouldnever marry again.
Emma, Northanger Abbey, Persuasion
Oh dear, no! Weston, who had been a widowerso long, and who seemed so perfectly comfortable without a wife,so constantly occupied either in his business in town or among hisfriends here, always acceptable wherever he went, always cheerful—Mr. Weston need not spend a single evening in the year alone if he didnot like it. Weston certainly would never marry again. Some people even talked of a promise to his wife on her deathbed,and others of the son and the uncle not letting him.
All mannerof solemn nonsense was talked on the subject, but I believed noneof it. I planned the match from that hour; and when such success has blessedme in this instance, dear papa, you cannot think that I shall leaveoff match-making. Your time has been properly anddelicately spent, if you have been endeavouring for the last fouryears to bring about this marriage.
A worthy employment for a younglady's mind! But if, which I rather imagine, your making the match,as you call it, means only your planning it, your saying to yourselfone idle day, 'I think it would be a very good thing for Miss Taylorif Mr. Weston were to marry her,' and saying it again to yourselfevery now and then afterwards, why do you talk of success? Whereis your merit? What are you proud of? You made a lucky guess;and that is all that can be said. There is always some talent in it. And as to my poor word 'success,' which you quarrel with, I do notknow that I am so entirely without any claim to it.
You have drawntwo pretty pictures; but I think there may be a third—a somethingbetween the do-nothing and the do-all. If I had not promoted Mr. Weston'svisits here, and given many little encouragements, and smoothedmany little matters, it might not have come to any thing after all. I think you must know Hartfield enough to comprehend that. You are more likely to have done harm to yourself,than good to them, by interference.
Woodhouse, understanding but in part. Poor Mr. Youlike Mr. Elton, papa,—I must look about for a wife for him. There is nobody in Highbury who deserves him—and he has beenhere a whole year, and has fitted up his house so comfortably,that it would be a shame to have him single any longer—and I thoughtwhen he was joining their hands to-day, he looked so very much as ifhe would like to have the same kind office done for him!
I thinkvery well of Mr. Elton, and this is the only way I have of doinghim a service. Elton is a very pretty young man, to be sure, and a verygood young man, and I have a great regard for him.

But if youwant to shew him any attention, my dear, ask him to comeand dine with us some day. That will be a much better thing. I dare say Mr. Knightley will be so kind as to meet him. Knightley,laughing, "and I agree with you entirely, that it will be a muchbetter thing.
Invite him to dinner, Emma, and help him to the bestof the fish and the chicken, but leave him to chuse his own wife. Depend upon it, a man of six or seven-and-twenty can take careof himself.
