in consequence of the missive, Weighing the evidence so far, penned by Kathi
My impression is Wickham is trying to draw Lizzy into spreading her poor opinion of Darcy among her family and in the neighborhood. "It is impossible for me to be impartial." Wickham says in this conversation as he remembers the father, he cannot proclaim to the world his ill usage by Darcy. So in honour of old Mr Darcy he will not publicly reveal Mr Darcy's bad behaviour toward him so keep his silence. Now, does he want Lizzy to be an instument to spead her poor opinion of Darcy ? "But I believe your opinion of him would in general astonish-" If he has decided to retain silence, why tell Lizzy his story anyway? She's already assured him the neighborhood dislikes him yet one would think Mr Wickham seeks to have his personal story spread. Though not by him. Decidedly odd!
