I think the difference in character between Mr Collins senior and Mr Bennet was probably the root cause of the rift..Mr Bennet can never be called a miser and was certainly a gentleman, though selfish,IMHO.He sounds diametrically opposite to Mr Collins senior.
Whatever the cause of their arguement, they had to be intimate enough to have one ;-)And it had to be substantial as the ramifications of the quarrel lasted for years......
Call me a cynical old lawyer( go on!), but in my experince money or a will is usually the casue of such family stife ;-)
