Come for chaise, Mama?

Ssshhh.

Good morning, Lady Lucas.

Oh! Good morning, Mrs. Bennet.

We shall meet

at the Assembly Ball, of course.

Yes, indeed.

Goodbye, Sister. Oh!

You mustn't leave Lady Lucas.

Tell Mr. Beck to show you that

exquisite piece of flower damask.

Goodbye!

Goodbye.

Goodbye.

Goodbye, Lady Lucas.

Goodbye, Lizzie.

Come over to Longbourn,

Charlotte.

Mama!

Heaven only knows

where your sisters are!

We must get home at once!

But, Mama, why?

Your father must call on

Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy

this very afternoon.

If he doesn't, the Lucases will.

That's what it looks like.

But the damask, milady.

Oh, we'll choose the material

some other time, Mr. Beck.

Come, Charlotte.

Hurry, my dear!

Where are those girls?

Whenever I want them,

I never can find them.

There's Mary, Mama.

Oh! Mary! Mary!

Isn't that just like the girl!

Ah, ah, Mary!

Mary!

Oh!

Look, Mama!

I have just purchased

Burke's essay

on the sublime and beautiful!

You and your books!

No wonder you're compelled

to wear disfiguring glasses!

Oh! Where are Kitty and Lydia?

Look for an Officer in a red coat

and you'll find them.

Ah, yes, the Officers!

Come girls!

Is that the way

you'll treat a wife, Mr. Wickham?

More likely to be the way

she will treat me, Miss Lydia.

Mama, there they are.

Where?

There. Look.

Kitty, there's Mama.

Kitty! Lydia! Come here!

Those two are getting sillier

and sillier over Officers.

I don't know

why you permit it, Mama.

I had a weakness for the

military myself when I was young.

Oh, Mama!

Do we have to go home so soon?

We just met

the most fascinating new Officer!

A Mr. Wickham.

He's just joined the Black Shoes.

He's charming!

Yes, I suppose

he's very delightful!

Oh, dear!

Where is that coachman?

Where is Jennings?

Aldous Huxley

Aldous Leonard Huxley (26 July 1894 – 22 November 1963) was an English writer, novelist, philosopher, and prominent member of the Huxley family. He graduated from Balliol College at the University of Oxford with a first-class honours degree in English literature. The author of nearly fifty books, Huxley was best known for his novels (among them Brave New World, set in a dystopian future); for nonfiction works, such as The Doors of Perception, in which he recalls his experiences taking psychedelic drugs; and for his wide-ranging essays. Early in his career, Huxley published short stories and poetry, and edited the literary magazine Oxford Poetry. He went on to publish travel writing, film stories, satire, and screenplays. He spent the latter part of his life in the United States, living in Los Angeles from 1937 until his death.Huxley was a humanist and pacifist. He became interested in spiritual subjects such as parapsychology and philosophical mysticism, and in particular universalism. By the end of his life, Huxley was widely acknowledged as one of the pre-eminent intellectuals of his time. He was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature seven times. In 1962, a year before he died, Huxley was elected Companion of Literature by the Royal Society of Literature. more…
