Volume 1 Chapter 5 Summary

In this chapter, Mr. Knightley visits Mrs. Weston to discuss the subject of Harriet and her influence on Emma. Mr. Knightley is quite concerned that Harriet is not at all good for Emma and that their acquaintance bodes ill for Emma. Mrs. Weston does not share this opinion, and their conversation reveals quite a bit about Emma's character and what makes her tick. For the first time, it is revealed that Mr. Knightley might have some affection for Emma beyond friendliness. Mrs. Weston won't be swayed in her opinion that Harriet is a good friend for Emma.

The two leave their conversation until Christmas, when the arrival of Mr. Knightley's brother and Emma's sister Isabella will take place. Since both John Knightley and Isabella know Emma quite well, it is hoped that they will be able to make sense out of this problem.
