in consequence of the missive, But none of the three possibilities you have listed, penned by Ramya
"Bingley was hardly dragging him into the dance floor--he was just trying to persuade him as a friend,"
They all seem to get along very well, but does it imply that there is never the least friction? We know such is not the case, the narrator make us the witnesses of it, direct or undirect.
Do you think that when Miss Bingley "wishes joy" to Mr Darcy, she is really telling what she thinks? Isn't she rather "doing the donkey to get bran", as we say in France? Cannot we extend to him the possibility, with these intimate friends, of saying a bit more than what he thinks? I don't mean saying the opposite!
