“My Uncle & Aunt drank tea with us last night, & in spite of my resolution to the contrary, I could not help putting forward to invite them again this Evening. I thought it was of the first consequence to avoid anything that might seem a slight to them. I shall be glad when it is over, & hope to have no necessity for having so many dear friends at once again.”
letter to Cassandra
April 23, 1805 
It seems that one of the reasons Jane disliked Bath was the increased social obligations. She preferred her quiet country life.
