Miss Elizabeth. I have struggled in vain and can bear it no longer. These past months have been a torment. I have fought against judgement, my family’s expectation, inferiority of your birth, my rank. I will put them aside and ask you to end my agony.
Lizzy just like:
I love you. Most ardently. Please do me the honor of accepting my hand.
Lizzy still just like:
Sir, I appreciate the struggle you have been through,and I am very sorry to have caused you pain. It was unconsciously done.
Is this your reply?
Yes. I’m sure that the feelings which, as you’ve told me have hindered your regard, will help you in overcoming it.
Might I ask why, with so little endeavor at civility, I am thus repulsed?
And I might as well inquire why, with so evident a design of insulting me, you chose to tell me that you liked me against your better judgment.
Do you think anything might tempt me to accept the hand of the man who has ruined, perhaps for ever, the happiness of a most beloved sister?
I believed your sister indifferent to him. I observed them most carefully and realized his attachment was far deeper than hers.
That’s because she’s shy! My sister hardly shows her true feelings to me!
There was, however, the matter of your family... a lack of propriety shown by your mother, your three younger sisters, and even, on the occasion, your father.
...Forgive me. You and your sister I must exclude from this
And what about Mr. Wickham? What excuse can you give for your behavior toward him?
So this is your opinion of me? Thank you. Perhaps these offences might have been had your pride not been hurt by scruples about our relationship. Am to rejoice in the inferiority of your recent circumstances?
...
Forgive me, madam, for taking up so much of your time.
