Sense and Sensibility Chapter 6
Their journey is sad, but they soon become excited to see their new home. The cottage is cozy and attractive, there is a lovely garden, and the surrounding hills are wide and beautiful.
Sir John Middleton comes to visit them, and offers anything he can to make them comfortable. His wife, Lady Middleton, invites them to her house. Young and handsome, Lady Middleton is friendly but not warm, and seems capable only of small talk. But Sir John is very talkative, and when Lady Middleton brings out her child, they are amply occupied with entertainment for their visit.
