in consequence of the missive, I believe it was a custom, a courtesy, to pay a call..., penned by Adrian
Mr Woodhouse definitely calls himself remiss about it in E1, and yes, there it is in Emma ch32: "... But I ought to have gone before. Not to wait upon a bride is very remiss. ..."
I still don't think it explains his earliness in calling, especially as it means sharing the walk with Mr Collins. To misquote S+S3:
"I am surprised at you,
Marianne Mr Darcy."
"Why is that?"
"Freely volunteering for more of
Mrs Jennings's teasing Mr Collins's greasing."
