    It might. Please give us the whole sentence.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    This is the whole sentence:

    "And you have forgotten one matter of joy to me," said Emma, "and a very considerable one—that I made the match myself. I made the match, you know, four years ago; and to have it take place, and be proved in the right, when so many people said Mr. Weston would never marry again, may comfort me for any thing."

    Any ideas?
