in consequence of the missive, Departure queries, penned by Stephanie
I do not think Darcy told Fitzwilliam of the proposal, but he easily could have said that Lizzy was vastly mistaken in Darcy's treatment of Wickham, that Darcy had given Fitzwilliam to Lizzy as a reference who could vouch for Darcy's honorable behavior, and that Fitzwilliam should feel free to answer any question Lizzy might put to him on the matter including those of his sister.
Darcy's more rapid departure created a space in which Lizzy could feel more freedom to consult with Fitzwilliam. (But Darcy might have harbored a slight hope that, if Lizzy had been present when they both arrived, he might by seeing Lizzy's face gain a clue to her reception of his letter. After all, we know how rapidly Darcy could look at a woman and almost instantly appraise the innermost workings of their hearts. We saw how easily he read Jane's sentiments at Netherfield and Lizzy's at Rosings--LOL).
