in consequence of the missive, Elizabeth & Jane -- closely connected even in letters, penned by kathleen (elder)
According to the Introduction of my P&P, no fewer than 44 letters are quoted,mentioned or refered to in the novel. (S&S has 21 letters mentioned) There are letteres between Lizzy and Charlotte and regular communications of Lizzy and Jane with Mrs Gardiner. Women seem to be the greatest letter writers,although there is a reference to Darcy writing to his sister. Maybe P&P also began as a novel in letters.
