Loveliness itself

[Mrs. Weston]  “She is loveliness itself.  Mr. Knightley, is not she?”

“I have not a fault to find with her person,” he replied.  “I think her all you describe.  I love to look at her; and I will add this praise, that I do not think her personally vain.  Considering how handsome she is, she appears to be little occupied with it; her vanity lies another way.”

    Have you seen this?
    It is based on your book!
    Hope you are feeling much better- that the Lord gives you “grace for the place” as Pastor Erwin Lutzer likes to encourage!
