in consequence of the missive, Decidedly hypocritical, penned by Jim Morris
In a way Darcy also encouraged Caroline to disparage Elizabeth -- because although attracted to Eliz, he was also fighting against his attraction --
re chap 6 -- '"You will have a charming mother-in-law, indeed; and, of course, she will be always at Pemberley with you."
He listened to her with perfect indifference while she chose to entertain herself in this manner; and as his composure convinced her that all was safe, her wit flowed long.'
He listened with perfect indifference and did not object to what she said.
re chap 9 -- 'She often tried to provoke Darcy into disliking her guest, by talking of their supposed marriage, and planning his happiness in such an alliance.
"I hope," said she, as they were walking together in the shrubbery the next day, "you will give your mother-in-law a few hints, when this desirable event takes place, as to the advantage of holding her tongue; and if you can compass it, do cure the younger girls of running after the officers. -- And, if I may mention so delicate a subject, endeavour to check that little something, bordering on conceit and impertinence, which your lady possesses."
"Have you anything else to propose for my domestic felicity?"
"Oh! yes. Do let the portraits of your uncle and aunt Philips be placed in the gallery at Pemberley. Put them next to your great-uncle the judge. They are in the same profession, you know; only in different lines."'
He listened and almost encouraged her, he did not show displeasure.
