Chapter 5 Summary

In this chapter Mrs. Dashwood informs John and Fanny that they will be moving, and John expresses his sorrow that the new house is so far away that he will have to send his gifts of furniture (which he and Fanny had decided were enough of a gift) by boat rather than by road. She invites John and Fanny, and particularly Edward, to visit.

Mrs. Dashwood and the three sisters rent their new cottage for a year, and Elinor advises her mother to sell the family's carriage and keep only three servants. These servants go ahead to get the house ready, and Mrs. Dashwood briefly hopes that John will now give the girls some money to fulfill his promise to his father. He does not do so and the women sadly leave Norland to move to their new cottage home.
