Mrs WestonEmma's mother died when she was very young. She was raised her entire life by a governess. When Emma reached age 20, no longer needing a governess, she promptly began figuring out who her governess should marry. The story opens with the marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Weston. Emma is very pleased with her match - but her father is sad to see the governess go. In Emma's father's eyes, the governess should have stayed in their cozy little family group forever.
Mrs. Weston is obviously very fond of Emma, and tries to help her as best she can. She is very worried when she hears that Frank has been engaged all the time, since she thinks Emma is fond of Frank and that Emma will be wounded by the news.
Emma on the left, Mrs. Weston on the right. Weston's necklace is a *little* gaudy for the time.
