Mr. Wickham es hijo de un hombre respetabilísimo que tuvo a su cargo durante muchos años la administración de todos los dominios de Pemberley, y cuya excelente conducta inclinó a mi padre a favorecerle, como era natural; el cariño de mi progenitor se manifestó, por lo tanto, generosamente en George Wickham, que era su ahijado. Costeó su educación en un colegio y luego en Cambridge, pues su padre, constantemente empobrecido por las extravagancias de su mujer, no habría podido darle la educación de un caballero.

V.O.

Mr. Wickham is the son of a very respectable man, who had for many years the management of all the Pemberley estates, and whose good conduct in the discharge of his trust naturally inclined my father to be of service to him; and on George Wickham, who was his godson, his kindness was therefore liberally bestowed. My father supported him at school, and afterwards at Cambridge—most important assistance, as his own father, always poor from the extravagance of his wife, would have been unable to give him a gentleman's education.
