in consequence of the missive, Departure queries, penned by Stephanie
Old Mr. Darcy may simply have reiterated this before he died.
Note that Wickham refers to the living as a bequest; that means it was part of a will. I interpret this to mean that Old Mr. Darcy, with his dying breath (so to speak), assured Old Mr. W that his son would be taken care of. Mr. Wickham fils kept up the pretense that he was preparing to take the church living until his own father died; then he made his true wishes known to Darcy.
