in consequence of the missive, Inconsistency in Wickham's story?, penned by John W
We know that Wickham is not at the Netherfield Ball. When Lydia asked about him, Denny
told them that Wickham had been obliged to go to town on business the day before, and was not yet returned; adding, with a significant smile --
While Denny certainly implies that the presence of Darcy was a contributing factor in Wickham's absence, we don't know Wickham's reasons for sure (at this point in the story, at least). I do wonder, however, what Wickham's business might have been ("town" means London, I assume?). Does he (claim to) have investments? :-)
