Synopsis:

\begin{sloppypar}
  ... paragraphs ...
\end{sloppypar}

Typeset the paragraphs with \sloppy in effect (see \fussy & \sloppy). Use this to locally adjust line breaking, to avoid ‘Overfull box’ or ‘Underfull box’ errors.

The example is simple.

\begin{sloppypar}
  Her plan for the morning thus settled, she sat quietly down to her
  book after breakfast, resolving to remain in the same place and the
  same employment till the clock struck one; and from habitude very
  little incommoded by the remarks and ejaculations of Mrs.\ Allen,
  whose vacancy of mind and incapacity for thinking were such, that
  as she never talked a great deal, so she could never be entirely
  silent; and, therefore, while she sat at her work, if she lost her
  needle or broke her thread, if she heard a carriage in the street,
  or saw a speck upon her gown, she must observe it aloud, whether
  there were anyone at leisure to answer her or not.
