I have really enjoyed all of your posts regarding Elizabeth, but I think you erred in saying "...ending with the colonel admitting if there was affection in the case it very sadly lessens the honor of Darcy’s triumph."
Colonel Fitwilliam says that if there was not affection in the case that it lessens the triumph:
But," she continued, recollecting herself, "as we know none of the particulars, it is not fair to condemn him. It is not to be supposed that there was much affection in the case."
"That is not an unnatural surmise," said Fitzwilliam, "but it is lessening the honour of my cousin's triumph very sadly."
I believe Fitzwilliam is saying that if Bingley did not have affection then it wouldn't have been much of a triumph to separate him from the woman.
