Context

“«Oh! no—there is nothing to surprize one at all.—A pretty fortune; and she came in his way.»
«I dare say,» returned Harriet, sighing again, «I dare say she was very much attached to him.»
«Perhaps she might; but it is not every man's fate to marry the woman who loves him best. Miss Hawkins perhaps wanted a home, and thought this the best offer she was likely to have.»
«Yes,» said Harriet earnestly, «and well she might, nobody could ever have a better. Well, I wish them happy with all my heart.” source
