in consequence of the missive, Printing blunder., penned by Srirup
As I understand it, the lines of Jane and Elizabeth's,
"How hard it is in some cases to be believed!"
"And how impossible in others!"
the printer originally put into one quote two sentences long. I can not find the reference where I was first told this, but it was on this site, I think.
The 'supper' reference I heard (from the same source?) was that when First Impressions was drafted, hot suppers were served earlier (at least with the Ton in London) than when Pride and Prejudice went to press, and, while vulgar Mrs. Phillips might still be inviting people to hot suppers, gentlewoman Mrs. Bennet should be serving a very simple cold collation at a much later hour.
