in consequence of the missive, I support your view, penned by Kathleen Glancy
"But, my dear, your father cannot spare the horses, I am sure. They are wanted in the farm, Mr. Bennett, are not they?"
"They are wanted in the farm much oftener than I can get them."
"But if you have got them to-day," said Elizabeth, "my mother's purpose will be answered."
I can see your point, Lizzy could be poking fun, although I can't see anything in the text to confirm this - she certainly doesn't disagree with the scheme of her mother's, and her remarks to her father as above suggest his compliance perhaps?
