She had no doubt as to his being less in love--but neither his agitated15 spirits, nor his hurrying away, seemed like a perfect cure; and she was rather inclined to think it implied a dread16 of her returning power, and a discreet17 resolution of not trusting himself with her long.This was the only visit from Frank Churchill in the course of ten days. He was often hoping, intending to come--but was always prevented. His aunt could not bear to have him leave her. Such was his own account at Randall;s. If he were quite sincere, if he really tried to come, it was to be inferred that Mrs. Churchill;s removal to London had been of no service to the wilful18 or nervous part of her disorder19. That she was really ill was very certain; he had declared himself convinced of it, at Randalls. Though much might be fancy, he could not doubt, when he looked back, that she was in a weaker state of health than she had been half a year ago. He did not believe it to proceed from any thing that care and medicine might not remove, or at least that she might not have many years of existence before her; but he could not be prevailed on, by all his father;s doubts, to say that her complaints were merely imaginary, or that she was as strong as ever.It soon appeared that London was not the place for her. She could not endure its noise. Her nerves were under continual irritation20 and suffering; and by the ten days; end, her nephew;s letter to Randalls communicated a change of plan. They were going to remove immediately to Richmond. Mrs. Churchill had been recommended to the medical skill of an eminent21 person there, and had otherwise a fancy for the place. A ready-furnished house in a favourite spot was engaged, and much benefit expected from the change.Emma heard that Frank wrote in the highest spirits of this arrangement, and seemed most fully22 to appreciate the blessing23 of having two months before him of such near neighbourhood to many dear friends-- for the house was taken for May and June. She was told that now he wrote with the greatest confidence of being often with them, almost as often as he could even wish.Emma saw how Mr. Weston understood these joyous24 prospects25. He was considering her as the source of all the happiness they offered. She hoped it was not so. Two months must bring it to the proof.Mr. Weston;s own happiness was indisputable. He was quite delighted. It was the very circumstance he could have wished for. Now, it would be really having Frank in their neighbourhood. What were nine miles to a young man?--An hour;s ride. He would be always coming over. The difference in that respect of Richmond and London was enough to make the whole difference of seeing him always and seeing him never. Sixteen miles--nay, eighteen--it must be full eighteen to Manchester-street--was a serious obstacle. Were he ever able to get away, the day would be spent in coming and returning. There was no comfort in having him in London; he might as well be at Enscombe; but Richmond was the very distance for easy intercourse26. Better than nearer!One good thing was immediately brought to a certainty by this removal,-- the ball at the Crown. It had not been forgotten before, but it had been soon acknowledged vain to attempt to fix a day. Now, however, it was absolutely to be; every preparation was resumed, and very soon after the Churchills had removed to Richmond, a few lines from Frank, to say that his aunt felt already much better for the change, and that he had no doubt of being able to join them for twenty-four hours at any given time, induced them to name as early a day as possible.Mr. Weston;s ball was to be a real thing. A very few to-morrows stood between the young people of Highbury and happiness.Mr. Woodhouse was resigned. The time of year lightened the evil to him. May was better for every thing than February. Mrs. Bates was engaged to spend the evening at Hartfield, James had due notice, and he sanguinely27 hoped that neither dear little Henry nor dear little John would have any thing the matter with them, while dear Emma were gone.[标签:标题] 2021-06-15 01:42:13
