Mrs. Bennet's Nite Cap
“Mr. Bennet, how can you abuse your own children in such a way! You take delight in vexing me. You have no compassion on my poor nerves.” Mrs. Bennet
“You mistake me, my dear. I have a high respect for your nerves. They are my old friends. I have heard you mention them with consideration these twenty years at least.” Mr. Bennet.
Poor Mrs Bennet, she has 5 girls a seemingly complacent husband, she could loose her home to her husband’s relatives at anytime, and as a woman had no way to better her position respectably. Is there any reason why she wouldn’t fret so?
Her nerves sending her to bed so often, would need soothing by pretty things. This lace beret is just such an item.
