in consequence of the missive, Civil but not accomodating., penned by mikeB in Japan
Assuming Darcy could have met the Gariners without Lizzie present, would her tongue-lashing of his pride, arrogance and conceit have already had some effect on his manners? According to Mrs Reynolds description of his general character, I can hardly see him being deliberately rude to visitors to his home and grounds since it was common enough practise. In light of Lizzie's words,would he have made even more of an effort to be civil and polite? He took the Gardiners for people of fashion, so he would surely have bidden them good day, maybe even exchanged few words of conversation. He seemed well-liked enough by his staff and servants, so why would he be anything but civil with visitors? I'd have to hope he'd be that at least.
