Emma Woodhouse and her father have dinner at their residence, Hartfield, without Emma's ex-governess, Miss Taylor, who was married to Mr. Weston and relocated half a mile away that day. During their meal, Mr. Knightley comes to visit. While Mr. Woodhouse laments the marriage of the Westons, considering it an unfortunate change, Emma highlights its positive aspects and claims that she was responsible for arranging the match. Mr. Knightley expresses doubt, suggesting that the two parties were naturally drawn to each other. Emma, however, remains convinced of her matchmaking skills and announces her intentions to make a match for Mr. Elton.
