in consequence of the missive, Elizabeth's excuses, penned by Therese
And regarding Lizzy’s innocence: Wickham’s story is so surprising that I think a person who isn’t use to being lied to would tend to think no one would tell such a story if it wasn’t true. Even if she has read some “whodunits” she’s not likely to expect that in real life.
Another thing: I get the impression Elizabeth takes some pride in her ability to Judge a person’s character and I think Wickham flatters her a bit there (though he may not do so intentionally.)
"I cannot pretend to be sorry," said Wickham, after a short interruption, "that he or that any man should not be estimated beyond their deserts; but with him I believe it does not often happen. The world is blinded by his fortune and consequence, or frightened by his high and imposing manners, and sees him only as he chuses to be seen."
The implication is that most people are fooled by Darcy, but not you.
