    At last...will

    ďAt last Iíll see that they do not do anything outrageous to
    her,Ē aunt said.

    Does this sentence sound good to native speakers, with 'at last' used together with 'will'?

    Thank you in advance.

    Have you copied this sentence correctly? Could it be "At least.....?"

    It really is 'At last' in the sentence (copied from a grammar book). Can 'at last' be used with the future 'will'?

    Thank you again.

    Not a teacher -

    Yes it can (why not?), it means "finally".
    For example: the aunt had been cleaning the window, because it was dirty, and when it was finally clean, she said that sentence.
