in consequence of the missive, Good point - I overlooked that in posting my message. We, penned by AnnetteJ
that he is at least as interested in food as drink, if not more so. He did not say anything when Elizabeth arrived at Netherfield in Chapter 7 because he "was thinking only of his breakfast" and later he has nothing to say to her when he finds she prefers a plain dish to a ragout. Also, if he is a reasonably successful card player (which I think he must be as he would be less keen to play if he always lost) he must have a fairly clear head, especially with the rather complicated game of piquet which he and Bingley play at one point, and that would argue against excessive drinking in the early evening.
