[…] Servants Focused on the Horses […]

I so look forward to Mondays , to your Blogs. I find them wonderful , I love to read them and have them answer all the little questions I have about the time period. No wonder Mr Darcy could not answer the question ” How many people does it take to keep Pemberly going” . Now I understand even more. His stables alone ,would take a full staff, with the horses and their gear, then the carriages . It must have been overwhelming at the age of two and twenty to be master of all that, and a grieving sister. You really bring the story alive , to me any way , with all this extra information. The sense of responsibility on one young man’s shoulders , no wonder , he was so serious , and sad he became. But his needs where yet so simple , he wanted a woman who could love him, not the stuff. He found that in Elisabeth Bennet, by rejecting him the first time , proved to him the stuff did not matter to her. When she said “yes” to his suit , it was for him, and him alone . You really got that , in your writings . The most special moment of Mr Darcy’s life was when He put the wedding band on Elisabeth’s finger.
Thank you .
