in consequence of the missive, Not what I had read, penned by Therese
who are the ones that could refuse a man for a pair of dances, as they are the ones who were asked. (AS Henry Tilney says about marriage and dancing, in both "man has the advantage of choice, woman only the power of refusal").
I don't see how this apply to Darcy. Supposing that Lizzy had refused another gentleman, then she would just refuse Darcy's invitation (the same if she was sitting because she was tired or had sprained her ankle); but Darcy doesn't say: "Perhaps she has no desire to dance".
