Description

The Bennets own a carriage, as befits the landed gentry, but the horses that pull it must also be used for field work, illustrating the family’s lack of wealth. Mrs. Bennet uses this to her advantage when she refuses to let Jane take the carriage to Netherfield because the horses are needed in the field. As she hoped, rain keeps Jane at Netherfield, allowing her and Elizabeth to get to know their future husbands.
