in consequence of the missive, Weighing the evidence so far, penned by Kathi
I know Caroline warned Lizzy not to take Wickham's complaints against Darcy seriously yet with phrases Caroline uses, 'His coming into the country was a most insolent thing' then '...really considering his descent one could not expect much better.' It turns Caroline's advice into what Lizzy would regard as an opportunity to insult people of 'low descent'. She observes how Caroline attends on Darcy. So how can Lizzy accept Caroline's advice as nothing but another attempt to bolster Darcy or simply to insult people of'low descent' like herself and Wickham?
