Context

“«I am sure they will consent,» was her frequent declaration; «I am sure they will be delighted with you.»
«For my own part,» said Isabella, «my wishes are so moderate that the smallest income in nature would be enough for me. Where people are really attached, poverty itself is wealth; grandeur I detest: I would not settle in London for the universe. A cottage in some retired village would be ecstasy. There are some charming little villas about Richmond.»
«Richmond!» cried Catherine. «You must settle near Fullerton. You must be near us.»
