in consequence of the missive, Seems like a "two-fer" :-), penned by kathleen (elder)
Elizabeth listened in silence, but was not convinced; their behaviour at the assembly had not been calculated to please in general; and with more quickness of observation and less pliancy of temper than her sister, and with a judgment too unassailed by any attention to herself, she was very little disposed to approve them.
The note "judgment too unassailed by any attention to herself" is hidden in a longer passage, but it is clear that Author Austen thinks Elizabeth might be less unforgiving had she been the recipient of the ladies' civilities.
