    1. pg. 80, “I cannot see that London has any great advantage over the country for my part, except for the shops and public places.”

      London had a variety of shops: the newest fashions, bookstores, china showrooms, and shops with a wide selection of ribbon, lace, calico, or silk. Like Mrs. Bennett says in this quote on pg. 80, Jane Austen thought the town was a nice place to visit but not an ideal place to live. (Olsen, All Things Austen: Volume II, 620- 621)
