in consequence of the missive, The novel.., penned by Jim Morris
Darcy and his sisters think they need to separate him from Jane as quickly as possible and conceal her presence in London from him. Thatís rather extreme unless they think heís in danger of proposing.
Youíre right that arenít told Bingleyís feelings. But the question really pertains to his actions. By the standards of the day has he behaved in a way that would raise Janeís expectations? I think he has because not only Janeís family and neighborhood but his own friend and sisters seem to view it this way.
Also, thereís Darcyís story. If Bingley had no intentions toward Jane then when Darcy started warning him of all the reasons not to marry her why wouldnít Bingley say something like, ďDonít be silly it was only a few dances.Ē? Instead Darcy has to assure him that Jane doesnít have feelings for him.
