in consequence of the missive, Lizzy's illness, penned by Diane Margaret
I never thought of it that way before. On the other hand, what a good, legitimate excuse this was to see her alone. Of course, we know Darcy made this proposal mainly because his feelings overcame his "better judgement", but I don't think it was quite as impulsive as that - he must have made up his mind before he came that he would propose, in the knowledge that Elizabeth would be able to see him. If, thanks to Mr. Collins, he were convinced that Elizabeth was really sick, he would know that he probably would not be able to see her at all because she'd be in bed and/or not receiving visitors (plus, I don't think Charlotte would have left her if she'd been really sick).
