|Miss Bates first words?

in consequence of the missive, Cows & Friends, penned by Robbin
"I suppose you have heard of the handsome letter Mr Frank Churchill has written to Mrs Weston? I understand it was a very handsome letter, indeed. Mr Woodhouse told me of it. Mr Woodhouse saw the letter, and he says he never saw such a handsome letter." (2)
And what would you call this? Free direct discourse? It could be attributed to any (perhaps all) of Highbury's morning visitors, bar Mrs Weston and Mr Woodhouse, but the proximity of their names to this quote make Mrs Perry, Mrs and Miss Bates the most likely persons to utter these four sentences.
