in consequence of the missive, Weighing the evidence so far, penned by Kathi
Though Elizabeth appears so quick, intelligent and very clear-eyed about everyone else in the novel so far, (for example, she sees how fruitless Caroline Bingley's attempts to gain Darcy will be, she understands Mr Collins' stupidity right from the receipt of his letter to her father & she notes Jane's inclination to see only the best in everyone), perhaps she hasn't the same insight into her own personality.
Like everyone else in the neighbourhood she has formed a prejudice against Darcy; maybe it follows she will be prejudiced in favour of anyone who declares himself Darcy's "enemy". She doesn't stop and think rationally about Wickham's motives, or the fact that he defies his own claim, "Till I can forget his father, I can never defy or expose (Darcy)."
