in consequence of the missive, Chapter 15: descriptions of Mr Collins and Mrs Bennet, penned by kathleen (elder)
she would have told Mr Collins that Elizabeth was a very headstrong girl and would be quite capable of being pert to Lady Catherine de Bourgh, but her daughter Mary was very studious and formed to be a clergyman's wife. Mary, we know, might have been prepared to take him, though it would have been a disaster, since she thinks she could improve him and I don't think he would want to be improved. And while she would not exactly be pert Mary seems quite capable of lecturing Lady Catherine on morality. He is better off with Charlotte, who has no illusions about him but I have no doubt will either improve him without his knowing it or find ways to work round his deficiencies, and any Lady Catherine may possess.
