in consequence of the missive, The Gardiners' Children, penned by Cheryl
"On the stairs were a troop of little boys and girls, whose eagerness for their cousin's appearance would not allow them to wait in the drawing-room, and whose shyness, as they had not seen her for a twelvemonth, prevented their coming lower."
I have always wondered if this could be just an error, that Jane Austin overlooked or forgot the fact that the children would have seen Lizzy at Christmas at Longbourn (less than a year before) since they would not have been left at home away from their parents during that holiday.
