|Mr & Mrs Gardiner get some first name reference

in consequence of the missive, George, Charles, William and Fitzwilliam.., penned by Jim Morris
(which is more than the Bennets get). In his letter to Mr Bennet, Mr Gardiner signs off "EDW. GARDINER." I think this means his first name is likely Edward or Edwin, though it's not definite.
Mrs Gardiner signs her letter to Elizabeth thusly: "M. Gardiner." This doesn't narrow it down very much, but again, we don't even get this much for Mr or Mrs Bennet. :-)
