in consequence of the missive, "Meet Mr. Collins", The Letter, with critical commentar, penned by nan duval
that in Mr Collins' mind his duty to Lady Catherine comes before his duty to the Archbishop of Canterbury and the King, in their capacities as heads of the Church of England. (His duty to God does not seem to come into it at all, though to be fair most Church of England clergy at the time regarded the Church as a career rather than a vocation). One can't but wonder what he would do if the Archbishop were to issue a command with which Lady Catherine disagreed.
