in consequence of the missive, Certainly!, penned by Therese
Eliz didn't find Darcy kind and gentle with her at Netherfield -- she probably found him rather argumentative in the evening conversations, and then silent and ignoring her on the last day. It was Bingley whom Eliz found to be kind to her -- re chap 8 --
"Their brother, indeed, was the only one of the party whom she could regard with any complacency. His anxiety for Jane was evident, and his attentions to herself most pleasing, and they prevented her feeling herself so much an intruder as she believed she was considered by the others. She had very little notice from any but him".
Eliz was putting Darcy in the same category as the "others" i.e. B's sisters and Mr Hurst.
