if you have read Jane Austen's Pride & Prejdice, you would surely remember one of its characters - Lady Catherine de Bourgh, ruling matriarch of Rosings Estate and mother to Anne de Bourgh. 
in this snippet, we have a glimpse of her private thoughts as she ponders over the changes in her demeanor since she met her new parson's father Henry Watkins.
One thing, however, puzzled her - her friendship with Henry Watkins. He was becoming more and more important to her, and that fact confused her. Before his arrival, she would have adamantly claimed that businessman and people of new money were not of the same class as her, and therefore to be ignored at all costs. However, Henry challenged that assumption and seemed to have changed her mind on it entirely without her realising it. He had become someone whose presence she looked forward to every day and who was also fast becoming a confidante. The whole matter confused her.
