in consequence of the missive, Men/Women marrying for love or $$, penned by Heather Leigh
In ch.26, we are told "The sudden acquisition of ten thousand pounds was the most remarkable charm of the young lady to whom (Wickham) was now rendering himself agreeable; but Elizabeth, *less clear-sighted perhaps in his case than in Charlotte's*, did not quarrel with him for his wish of independence."
The Omniscient Narrator is telling us that a bit of Elizabeth's infatuation for Wickham still remains, which makes her less clear-sighted in his case than Charlotte's.
