Lizzy has finally returned from visiting Mr. Collins and Charlotte! I am very pleased because I did not want her to be with Lady Catherine any longer; I still cannot get over what she said! Anyway, now Lydia will not be leaving. She was invited to visit Brighton by the wife of a Colonel Forster. This sounds like a lot of fun for her, and it gets better! She will be accompanied by many young men on this trip, which could mean a husband!! I sure do hope so! I know many of you may think this could be a terrible idea to have my young girl travel with many young men but my husband assures me that the colonel will keep her out of trouble. I sure do hope she comes out of this with a potential husband! I need my daughters to marry, I mean where else will I go when my husband dies?!
