Mr Rivers, I wondered if you had yet heard of any work that I could do.
I found you a situation some days ago but I’ve delayed telling you because the work is lowly and I fear you'll scorn it.
I shan’t mind what I do.
As I am poor and obscure, the help I can offer is of the meanest sort.
St John, what are you going to offer her? Not washerwoman, I hope?
When I took over the parish two years ago it had no school. I opened one for boys; I now intend to open one for girls. The school mistress will have a two-roomed cottage paid for by local benefactors and she will receive fifteen pounds a year. You can see how humble, how ignoble it is.
On the contrary, Jane is deeply gratified.
Mr Rivers, I thank you heartily and I accept with all my heart.
But you comprehend me? It’s a village school – cottagers daughters. What will you do with all your fine accomplishments?
I will save them until they are wanted. They will keep.
Jane smiles at him.
