in consequence of the missive, Gossip in P&P: ch.1-2, penned by Line
This statement really struck me this week, for it doesn't jive with what is later said about him:
... unshackled by business, occupy himself solely in being civil to all the world. For, though elated by his rank, it did not render him supercilious; on the contrary, he was all attention to everybody. (ch 5)
He sounds exactly like the kind of man who would be the first to visit newcomers to the neighborhood. Is this a mistake on JA's part, or do you think that Mrs. Bennet has just embellished the case in order to urge Mr. Bennet to go visit? - everyone is visiting, even those who wouldn't normally - like you - so you'd better go, too?
