in consequence of the missive, Lizzie's dislike..., penned by Jim Morris
You're right about what Elizabeth *should* have done, but discounting Caroline's story after Caroline had just proved what a snob she really was, and believing Wickham who had made such a wonderful impression on everyone ;-) was only human, IMO. In real life, almost all of us are affected by our opinion of a particular speaker. I have certainly known people much older than Elizabeth whose opinion of someone's believability was very much coloured by their opinion of the individual.
