in consequence of the missive, Sorry, Karen, can you tell me where you find..., penned by Line
The two accounts about fathers' deaths are:
Darcy's: (Ch. 35) "His own father did not long survive mine, and within half a year from these events, Mr. Wickham wrote to inform me that, having finally resolved against taking orders, he hoped I should not think it unreasonable for him to expect some more immediate pecuniary advantage, in lieu of the preferment, by which he could not be benefited."
Frankly, I think I got confused on the bold part above, thinking the "half a year" was the event of Wickham's father's death after the event of Mr. Darcy's death. But I am mistaken; there's an "and" there which changes how I must have first read it.
