Though Mrs Bennet cannot help thinking he has come to check over the place, he arrives with the best of intentions. Written by

Lizzy, I hope you'll not keep Wickham to yourself all night. Kitty and I want to dance with him as well, you know.
I promise I shall not. Even if I wished to, I could not. I have to dance at least the first two with Mr. Collins.
Oh, Lord, yes. He's threatened to dance with us all.
