in consequence of the missive, Introducing the Netherfield Party (long), penned by Kathryn Ann
I have always assumed that Mr Hurst was one of those dissipated young men that married money because he'd used up a fair amount of his family's money. The line about his looking like a gentleman suggests to me that his family made what little money they have in trade. Is there any actual evidence for Mr Hurst's social standing? Also, if he doesn't have a good fortune, why did Louisa marry him? It doesn't seem in keeping with her personality (assuming her to be much the same as Caroline).
