in consequence of the missive, vulgar, penned by Nikki N
Exactly. A gentleman would generally be expected to prefer another gentleman as a friend or a husband for his sister or daguther, even if the gent were much poorer than a rich merchant. At teh very least, he would not be "tolerating" vulgarity in the merchant's family for the sake of their money. I find it hard to believe that D is SO sensitive to vulgarity that he's appalled by Mrs B or the rest of the Mertyton people, yet he doesn't notice the vulgarity of Caro B, whom he has spent far more time with. Or that he "Has" to snub the Meryton gentry for fear they will take advantage of him, yet he doesnt seem to notice C's very vulgar and obvious manoevering to get him as a husband.
