in consequence of the missive, what was he thinking??, penned by RobinT
I think is it a good point that he does not defend Elizabeth or her connections from Miss Bingley's jibes. He does not think Elizabeth is worthy enough to require the simple courtesy of a "such remarks are ill-bred; you forget yourself," no matter how he admires Elizabeth's eyes, or her manners in company!
I wonder if Mr. Darcy ever made the mistake of complimenting Miss Bingley before Hertfordshire? If not, this might have been a good time to try! "Miss Bingley, that is a very becoming gown," might have curbed her venom. Or can't a gentleman say something so personal to a lady to her face?
