|I do not think that Mrs Bennet planned

in consequence of the missive, All seems a little..., penned by Jim Morris
for her daughter to catch a severe cold. After all, Jane's relationship with Bingley will not be furthered while she is confined to a bedroom which propriety forbids him to enter. Mrs Bennet's plan is that Jane will go on horseback, it will rain hard and she will have to stay the night and meet Bingley over breakfast, since she is not going to meet him over dinner. Mrs Bennet has worked out (as, apparently, you have failed to do) that Mrs Hurst and Miss Bingley cannot just send Jane home at the first sneeze because the gentlemen will have Bingley's chaise and its horses out, waiting to convey them home once they have dined with the officers, and though the Hursts have a chaise they do not have horses, presumably hiring them at need. I would commiserate with you about being outwitted by Mrs Bennet were it not that I suspect your comments were not completely serious.
