in consequence of the missive, It's the assurance that offends me :-) [long], penned by kathleen (elder)
Precisely K. He just didn't want B to marry Jane, and It had little or nothing to do with thinking that maybe J didn't love Bingley. He didn't think he was biased, but he was clearly NOT willing to see anything that didn't accord with his desires to see J as indifferent. I'd say that most people would feel that a few hours observation of a woman in a public place is hardly enough to make up one's mind about her intimate feelings. If he had said that he observed her closely for several days, at a house party, MAYBE it might carry some conviction but one evening?
