in consequence of the missive, Mrs Gardiner: a sensible woman giving sensible advice, penned by kathleen (elder)
Mrs Gardiner does appear to be giving Lizzy good advice. my first reaction is she felt it pointless to tell her sensible niece who was a young woman what to think as Lizzy has the maturity and self-discipline to find things out for herself ...Yet I'm puzzled by Mrs Gardiner's recollection at the end of Ch.25 of Fitzwilliam Darcy as 'a proud, ill-natured boy' Does this reinforce (first time) readers notion Lizzy's impression of Darcy as correct? ...Or am I enquiring too early?
