Lady Osborne, vedova cinquantenne, di Osborne Castle, nel Surry (Lady Osborne had by much the finest person; - though nearly fifty, she was very handsome, and had all the dignity of rank.).

Lord Osborne, figlio di Lady Osborne (Lord Osborne was a very fine young man; but there was an air of coldness, of carelessness, even of awkwardness about him, which seemed to speak him out of his element in a ball room.).

Miss Osborne, figlia di Lady Osborne (He will never marry unless he can marry somebody very great; Miss Osborne perhaps, or something in that style.).

---- Purvis, amico di Robert Watson e marito mancato di Elizabeth Watson (I was very much attached to a young man of the name of Purvis, a particular friend of Robert's, who used to be with us a great deal. Every body thought it would have been a match).

Mr. Watson, di Stanton villaggio vicino a D.; vedovo e malandato in salute (he was sickly and had lost his wife);
I Watson abitano in una canonica, perciò Mr. Watson è certamente un ecclesiastico (they stopped beyond a doubt at the garden-gate of the parsonage.)

Emma Watson, figlia di Mr. Watson (Emma Watson was not more than of the middle height - well made and plump, with an air of healthy vigour.);
diciannove anni: (I am sure I should never have forgiven the person who kept me from a ball at nineteen.).

Margaret Watson, figlia di Mr. Watson; convinta che Tom Musgrove sia innamorato di lei (she is possessed with the notion of Tom Musgrave's being more seriously in love with her, than he ever was with any body else, and is always expecting him to come to the point.).

Jane Watson, moglie di Robert Watson (This is the second time within this twelvemonth that she has gone to spend a month with Robert and Jane [...] In her person there was nothing remarkable; her manners were pert and conceited.;
seimila sterline di dote (and why should not he be as lucky as Robert, who has got a good wife and six thousand pounds?).

Augusta Watson, figlia di Robert e Jane Watson (I assure you it went very hard with Augusta to have us come away without her.).

è innamorato di Miss Edwards ("Is Sam attached to Miss Edwards?" - "Did not you know that?).
