  • This remark was not calculated to make Edward or Elinor more easy, nor to conciliate the good will of Lucy,
  • But this conciliation was not granted; for though she often threw out expressions of pity for her sister to Elinor, and more than once dropt a reflection on the inconstancy of beaux before Marianne, no effect was produced, but a look of indifference from the former, or of disgust in the latter.
