"Northanger Abbey" by Jane Austen

In the quote below, which originally referred to Mr. and Mrs. Allen's feelings about having the young people leave Bath, I have changed some words to suggest my feelings about losing the graduating class of 2009. (My apologies to all Jane Austen fans.)
"[Mr. Salsich was] sorry to lose [his] young friend[s], whose good humour and cheerfulness had made [him] a valuable companion, and in the promotion of whose enjoyment [his] own had been gently increased."
