[Anne has been upset and flustered as she hurries through Kellynch Hall, marking an inventory of items throughout the mansion. She spies Lady Russell's carriage approaching and goes outside to meet her. They talk while returning inside]
Anne Elliot: My dear Russell!
Lady Russell: My dear Anne. You look quite done for. I came back as soon as I received your letter. I had no idea the position was so worse.
Anne Elliot: Unfortunately, a person who has contracted debts must pay them, even if he is a gentleman.
Lady Russell: Was there no possibility of retrenchment?
Anne Elliot: Unfortunately, Father and Elizabeth could find no means of lessening their expenses without compromising their dignity, or relinquishing their comforts in a manner simply not to be borne. But I have, at last, persuaded Father to let out the house. And if I can insure that we live within our means, somewhat less extravagant, then, in only a few years, we may be solvent again.
Lady Russell: A few years!
Anne Elliot: In any event, it is better than selling. At least, one day, I may hope to return.
Lady Russell: And where are you to go in the meantime? Is it decided?
