Riding in a Carriage
“At length the chaise arrived, the trunks were fastened on, the parcels placed within, and it was pronounced to be ready.”
“Lady Catherine, Sir William, and Mr. and Mrs. Collins sat down to quadrille; and as Miss De Bourgh chose to play at cassino, the two girls had the honour of assisting Mrs. Jenkinson to make up her party.”
Letters during the regency period!
“Soon after their return, a letter was delivered to Miss Bennet; it came from Netherfield, and was opened immediately. The envelope contained a sheet of elegant, little, hot pressed paper, well covered with a lady’s fair, flowing hand; and Elizabeth saw her sister’s countenance change as she read it, and saw her dwelling intently on some particular passages.”
So…I know that there was a lot of strange confusion on what the actual time period of this book is…it is in fact during the regency period. I have attached a link of some information regarding etiquette during this period.
