in consequence of the missive, I take Mr. Bennet's remark another way...., penned by jeffrey
I don't think Mr. Bennet was being serious either. I've always read it as him teasing Lizzy as you say: Every girl likes to be jilted so at least you'll be jilted by someone handsome!
I'm surprised (again) at Lizzy. She knows her father so well but she doesn't pick up on his teasing; is she so determined to think well of Wickham?
