in consequence of the missive, Darcy's visit, penned by Geri-Lynn
] She knew that Mr. Darcy would eventually visit the parsonage - good manners dictated it; but as to his visiting so soon upon arrival at Rosings, she had only Lizzy's presence in her home to credit that event.
That is the way I read it too. Could it be that it was time for Darcy and Col Fitzwilliam's "annual" visit to see their aunt? They probably came together often for "moral support".
I can see Lady Catherine giving them the local news of those in the area--and may have mentioned that the Collins had guests from Hertfordshire. She may even have mentioned Lizzy by name. It could be on hearing this that Darcy and Col Fitzwilliam decided on an early visit. Could be too they may have visited anyone--just to get away from Lady Catherine and her constant talking. Much like Col Fitzwilliam and his annual tour of the Park. :-)
