in consequence of the missive, Mr. Bennet Gets a Clue, penned by BarbaraB
Makes me wonder if Mr. Bennet might have remained in that state of remorse or guilt (if that's what he felt) had the situation NOT turned out so well (relatively) for Lydia, with the aid of her uncle. If Wickham had deserted Lydia in London and she was lost to the family, etc., for example, or even if she had had to return to the family without being married...with the full effects of that on the other girls.
Perhaps then he would have undergone true alteration? In other words, what would it take, if not the current situation, to change his attitude?
