in consequence of the missive, Trying to annoy Miss Bingley..., penned by Benedicte
I found a similar example while reading last night. In Ch. 8, Miss Bingley expresses astonishment at the smallness of her father's libray. But, since he had been in trade and was nouveau riche, it shouldn't have surprised her. She praises the library at Pemberley and, "It ought to be good," he [Darcy] replied; "it has been the work of many generations." This appeared to me a slight to the Bingley background.
