in consequence of the missive, It also shows the risks Darcy was willing to take to..., penned by Cathy Allen
Wickham persuaded Georgiana to elope with him. Darcy arrived in time to send Wickham packing -- that's not really the same thing as abandoning Georgiana, imo.
Where in the novel does it say that Wickham has seduced and abandoned any other young woman?
Darcy risked Georgiana's reputation to make it clear to Elizabeth that Wickham's word (& his stories about Darcy) cannot be trusted. He didn't know what, specifically, Wickham had told Elizabeth, so all Wickham's dealings w/ the Darcy family were laid out.
