in consequence of the missive, More than civil, penned by Robbin
there is such a negative connotation with this word that I wonder why so many people use it. Must be prejudice!
The book says "attended to her conversation"
He was indignant at the impromptu dance - why? Because it halted all opportunity for conversation.
Since the dancing was centered around Lizzy's younger sisters I do not wonder that Darcy was reluctant to join in. :D
Well, with your argument he is thus slightly himself since he was seen dancing at the assembly.
It pleased him to do so - what a strange man.
Given what we have seen of Darcy and what we have been told - "haughty, reserved, and fastidious, and his manners, though well-bred, were not inviting." - the actions that he is now performing are astonishing - and thus "kindness".
