Mansfield Park曼斯菲尔德庄园原著
bout thirty years ago Miss Maria Ward, of Huntingdon,
with only seven thousand pounds, had the good luck to
captivate Sir Thomas B**ram, of Mansfield Park, in the
county of Northampton, and to be thereby raised to the rank of a
baronet’s lady, with all the comforts and consequences of an
handsome house and large income. All Huntingdon exclaimed on
the greatness of the match, and her uncle, the lawyer, himself,
allowed her to be at least three thousand pounds short of any
equitable claim to it. She had two sisters to be benefited by her
elevation; and such of their acquaintance as thought Miss Ward
and Miss Frances quite as handsome as Miss Maria, did not

scruple to predict their marrying with almost equal advantage.
But there c**ainly are not so many men of large fortune in the
world as there are pretty women to deserve them. Miss Ward, at
the end of half a dozen years, found herself obliged to be attached
to the Rev. Mr. Norris, a friend of her brother-in-law, with scarcely
any private fortune, and Miss Frances fared yet worse. Miss

Ward’s match, indeed, when it came to the point, was not
contemptible, Sir Thomas being happily able to give his friend an
income in the living of Mansfield, and Mr. and Mrs. Norris began
their career of conjugal felicity with very little less than a thousand
a year. But Miss Frances married, in the common phrase, to
disoblige her family, and by fixing on a lieutenant of marines,
without education, fortune, or connexions, did it very thoroughly.
She could hardly have made a more untoward choice. Sir Thomas
B**ram had interest, which, from principle as well as pride—from
a general wish of doing right, and a desire of seeing all that were
connected with him in situations of respectability, he would have
been glad to ex** for the advantage of Lady B**ram’s sister; but
her husband’s profession was such as no interest could reach; and
before he had time to devise any other method of assisting them,

an absolute breach between the sisters had taken place. It was the
natural result of the conduct of each party, and such as a very
imprudent marriage almost always produces. To save herself from
useless remonstrance, Mrs. Price never wrote to her family on the
subject till actually married. Lady B**ram, who was a woman of
very tranquil feelings, and a temper remarkably easy and indolent,
would have contented herself with merely giving up her sister, and
thinking no more of the matter; but Mrs. Norris had a spirit of
activity, which could not be satisfied till she had written a long and

Thomas saw repeated, and for ever repeated, reason to rejoice in
what he had done for them all, and acknowledge the advantages of
early hardship and discipline, and the consciousness of being born
to struggle and endure. With so much true merit and true love,
and no want of fortune and friends, the happiness of the married
cousins must appear as secure as earthly happiness can be.—
Equally formed for domestic life, and attached to country
pleasures, their home was the home of affection and comfort; and
to complete the picture of good, the acquisition of Mansfield living,
by the death of Dr. Grant, occurred just after they had been
married long enough to begin to want an increase of income, and
feel their distance from the paternal abode an inconvenience.

Mansfield Park曼斯菲尔德庄园原著
On that event they removed to Mansfield, and the parsonage
there, which under each of its two former owners, Fanny had
never been able to approach but with some painful sensation of
restraint or alarm, soon grew as dear to her heart, and as
thoroughly perfect in her eyes, as everything else within the view
and patronage of Mansfield Park had long been.
