It is now nearly Christmas and its approach brings Mr. and Mrs. Gardiner (Mrs. Bennet’s brother and sister-in-law) from London for a visit. They all attend a Christmas party at the Philips’ house in Meryton during which Charlotte invites Elizabeth to visit her at the Hunsford Parsonage in March. Wickham, to whom Elizabeth finds herself increasingly attracted, is also at the party. When the Gardiners return to London, they bring a depressed Jane with them in hope that a change of scene will raise her spirits.

After a quiet winter, March finally arrives. Wickham is now courting Miss King, a young lady who has a fortune of 10 000 pounds. He calls on Elizabeth before she leaves to visit Charlotte. She forgives him for his mercenary motives. They part on the promise that they will always be friends.

Slide 36

Elizabeth finds the situation at the parsonage much as she expected. Charlotte is satisfied with her new life but spends as much time as possible away from her husband. They are all invited to dine at Rosings Park, the residence of Lady Catherine De Bourgh who is Mr. Collins patroness and Mr. Darcy’s aunt. Lady Catherine, a dictatorial and impertinent woman, is astonished by Elizabeth’s clever and direct manner of speaking.
