Mansfield Park pdf free download. About thirty years ago Miss Maria Ward, of Huntingdon, with only seven
thousand pounds, had the good luck to captivate Sir Thomas Bertram, 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
certainly 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-inlaw,
with scarcely any private fortune, and Miss Frances fared yet worse.
