|II don't think ...

in consequence of the missive, But Bingley, penned by Ramya
... either Darcy or Bingley doubted the "sincere, if not equal" characterization either before or after the conversation. I'm trying to point out that Darcy did not just invent the lack of passion on Jane's part, and Bingley did not just mindlessly accept Darcy's declaration. Read again the evidence I've referenced below. Darcy and Bingley had even less access to Jane's internal feelings than did Lizzy and Charlotte.
Why would they be even equally able, much less more, to see through her "composed, uniform cheerfulness"?
