Emma Chapter Twenty-Four

By Jane Austen

Chapter Twenty-Four

  • Frank and Mrs. Weston show back up at Hartfield early the next morning.
  • Emma joins them as they walk into town.
  • Frank seems charmed by everything in the town – and most of all the delightful Miss Woodhouse.
  • Excited by the handsome new man, Emma starts up a witty conversation about Jane Fairfax, insinuating that she was in love with her friend’s husband.
  • Mr. Churchill agrees with her in everything – including poking fun at Miss Fairfax’s past.
  • They have a delightful walk.
  • Emma reflects that Frank isn’t quite as smart as she imagined, but he’s definitely cute.
  • And he’s enthusiastic about her. Isn’t that enough?
