|I wonder how the conversation went?

in consequence of the missive, I had often seen him in love before, penned by B. MIchelle
We know what Darcy said to Bingley based on his (Darcy's) letter, but I wonder about the context. Perhaps Bingley confided in Darcy his feelings for Jane and asked Darcy's opinion, which Darcy gave as very negative, which would be his right.
I think Darcy giving an honest, negative opinion ("No, I don't think she loves you. And she wouldn't be a very prudent match anyway...consider her connections!") when he's been asked for that opinion is one thing; it's entirely another if he tries to persuade Bingley without first being asked.
And, of course, this doesn't reference Darcy's not mentioning Jane in London.
