in consequence of the missive, The Bedford, penned by Lisa Dalrymple
We have to remember he is a college student at Oxford, and the likes of JT have to find their place among people like Darcy, Bingley, Tilney etc. people with money there.
JT talks for effect. Mentioning names of people and places to impress.
JT is not well informed - he gets swindled when buying a second hand carriage - he obviously knows nothing about such things, so I doubt he buys and sells things to advantage, which reduces what I thought would be additional income for him.
Another interpretation is that, when Catherine asks him how he knew him;
Here Thorpe wants her to think he moves in high circles and has known the General forever, while perhaps they met in the billiard room at Bath.
As Carolyn as mentioned in her post;
We can't believe what he says.
