in consequence of the missive, Ch.14 +15: Wordless information-gathering, penned by Line
I had never caught that until you mentioned it but the more I read it over I think you are right. I had always tripped right along over that thinking that Bingley just decided it was time to go, maybe perhaps because Darcy had already walked on. However looking at it now makes it seem that he DID see what happened between Darcy and W (and thus must at least know that something has happened between the two) and was able to calmly (and in such a way as to prevent any notice or comment) remove his friend from an unpleasant situation. JA is very clever in the way she inserts that little bit of information, almost like an afterthought, but without seeming to have noticed, right in the middle of the sentence.
