|Is Mrs. Bennett a gambler or stupid in sending Jane

in consequence of the missive, Of colds and death, penned by Anselm
Did Mrs. Bennett's need to marry off her daughter mean she would risk anything to get Jane married well or is she just silly and can just look away from the danger when she says, "Oh! I am not at all afraid of her dying. People do not die of little trifling colds" I was also struck by the following line about the rainy trip, "her sisters were uneasy for her, but her mother was delighted." I don't think I like Mrs. Bennett very much today ;0(
As for Lizzy, I agree with the statements above that she was trying to get the firm answer that the horses were needed and Jane could not use them for the trip.
