Sense And Sensibility By Jane Austen PDF Free Download
Dashwood’s family had long been settled in Sussex.
His estate was large, and his residence was at Norland Park, in the center of his estate, where, for several generations, he lived in such a respectable manner as to engage the general good opinion of his surrounding acquaintances.
The late owner of this property was a single man, who lived to a very advanced age, and for many years of his life his sister was a constant companion and housekeeper.
But his death, which occurred ten years before his death, brought about a great change in their household; To compensate for his loss, he invited and welcomed into his home his nephew Mr. Henry Dashwood, the legal heir to the Norland estate and the family of the man to whom he intended to inherit it.
In the society of his nephews and nieces and their children, the old gentleman’s days were passed comfortably. His attachment to all of them increased.
Mr. and Mrs. Henry Dashwood’s constant attention to their wants, which came not only from interest, but from goodness of heart, afforded them every solid comfort their age could provide; And the happiness of the children added a joy to his existence.
From a former marriage, Mr. Henry Dashwood had one son: by his present woman, three daughters.
The son, a stable respectable young man, was adequately provided for by his mother’s fortune, which was enormous, and half of which was transferred to him when he came of age.
Likewise, with his own marriage, which took place shortly thereafter, he added to his wealth.
So for her the inheritance of the Norrland estate was not really as important as it was for her sisters; for their fortune, even if it arose from inheriting that wealth of their father’s, could be small.
His mother had nothing, and his father only seven thousand pounds; Because the remainder of his first wife’s fortune was also reserved for his child, and he had only a life interest in it.
The old gentleman died: his will was read, and like almost every other will, was met with joy as well as despair.
He was neither so unjust nor so ungrateful as to leave his wealth to his nephew; Rather, he left it on such terms that he destroyed half the value of the bequest.
Mr. Dashwood wished it more for his wife and daughters than for himself or his son;
But for his son, and his son’s son, who was a child of four, it was secured in such a way that he was left with no power to provide food for those who were dearest to him. were, and those most in need of any provision. From any charge on the property, or from any sale of its valuable timber.
All this was done for the benefit of this child, who had by now gained the affection of his uncle by occasional visits with his father and mother in Norrland,
from such charms as are by no means unusual in children of two or three years of age; An imperfect expression, a sincere desire to have one’s own way, many clever tricks, and much noise, which is far more than the worth of all attention,
For years, he had been receiving from his niece and her daughters.
However, he did not intend to be unkind, and, as a token of his affection for the three girls, he left them a thousand pounds each.
Mr. Dashwood’s despair was, at first, serious; but his disposition was cheerful and optimistic, and he could reasonably expect to live many years, and by living economically, could obtain a considerable amount from the produce of an already large estate, and nearly Was able to make immediate improvements.
But the fortune, which was so delayed in coming, had only one year.
Now his uncle is no more; and ten thousand pounds, including late legacies, was all that was left to his widow and daughters.
