in consequence of the missive, Wickham, penned by Bridget D
I agree that Wickham may have been fishing for information regarding Elizabeth and Darcy. Wickham must have wondered how Darcy came to be involved in making him marry Lydia. Elizabeth eluded any direct answer about herself and Darcy by mentioning that when Wickham saw him in town maybe he was preparing for a wedding with Miss de Bourgh. So Wickham had to go to more desperate measures in the conversation to try to get to the truth...
"Exceedingly well. I should have considered it as part of my duty, and the exertion would soon have been nothing. One ought not to repine; but, to be sure, it would have been such a thing for me! The quiet, the retirement of such a life, would have answered all my ideas of happiness! But it was not to be. Did you ever hear Darcy mention the circumstance when you were in Kent?"
And he did get Elizabeth to give a little more info there... not sure what he really wanted to get out of her, though. I never quite figured out why he was "so perfectly satisfied with this conversation".
