Mr. Knightley, to Mr. Woodhouse
Emma, volume 1, chapter 1

I’m just re-reading chapter 1 in Emma and realizing how many hints Austen gave us.

    Ah Mr. Knightley, the best of men. And I’m so glad you’ve had good days. Hopefully it won’t be just four but many healthy, successful days!

    Rejoice! Four good days! I will pray for many, many more great days and lots of peace!
