in consequence of the missive, Good points..., penned by Kathrynn
I think we are being shown some of the "prejudices", which Lizzy has to learn to acknowledge in herself. At the end of Volume 2 Ch 3 when Lizzy analyses her feelings about Wickham's defection, she is described as "less clear sighted perhaps in his case than in Charlotte's". The text is directing us to notice the imbalance in her judgement.
As for Lydia and Kitty - yes, they are young and apt to swoon over anything in uniform and Mr Wickham was the star of the moment with them all. They "take his defection much more to heart" than Lizzy because they are "young in the ways of the world" - much like teenagers crying over the marriage of a famous pop star, perhaps?
