Lady Margaret Sutherland
Lady Margaret Sutherland is the eldest daughter of the 6th Earl of Coventry. She, unfortunately, has a limited dowry, because of her father's gambling issues and is in danger of being considered on the shelf. Something of a bluestocking Lady Margaret needs to make a good match but is rather socially awkward.
Lady Margaret Sutherland shares a rum punch with Elizabeth Bennett. She is curious to know the affairs of her heart and proceeds to ask most uncomfortable questions on her thoughts about the various eligible bachelors in the room.
What do you think some of those questions might be?
And/or what questions would you ask of Elizabeth?

Pride and Prejudice's Mary Bennet gets her own story...
The third of five daughters, Miss Mary Bennet is a rather unremarkable girl. With her countenance being somewhere between plain and pretty and in possession of no great accomplishments, few expect the third Bennet daughter to attract a respectable man. But although she is shy and would much prefer to keep her nose stuck in a book, Mary is uncertain she wants to meekly follow the path to spinsterhood set before her.
Determined that Mary should have a chance at happiness, the elder Bennet sisters concoct a plan. Lizzy invites Mary to visit at Pemberley, hoping to give her sister a place to grow and make new acquaintances. But it is only when Mary strikes out independently that she can attempt to become accomplished in her own right. And in a family renowned for its remarkable Misses, Mary Bennet may turn out to be the most wholly unexpected of them all...
