in consequence of the missive, Charlotte's role, penned by Anne-Marie
Mr Collins may have written his letter in his library while Charlotte was out and about in the parish, or taking refuge in her sitting room. This next bit is more of a stretch, but maybe, just maybe, he didn't recite it to her.
Whatever Charlotte said about a faulty degree of indulgence (ch48) may have been aimed squarely at Mrs Bennet -- the counterpart of the 'plainness and mince pies' commentary from earlier in the novel. I think it's very likely that those Mrs Bennet-isms reached Charlotte's ears. That'd be some provocation.
