in consequence of the missive, Really Colonel Forster's?, penned by Therese
Mrs Bennet was being very specific, mentioning a specific sum (5000 or 6000 a year) instead of a simply saying "a good income", and then referring to a specific Colonel Forster, the only Col in the neighbourhood. Why would she expect a colonel in general to have 5,000 to 6000 a year, when she was happy with Bingley having 4,000 to 5,000 a year. I believe it means this Col did have 5,000 or 6,000 a year. There 's a post that says some rich men did join the militia to parade about in regimentals.
