in consequence of the missive, "Some people call him proud", penned by Kristen G.
" Mrs. Gardiner had seen Pemberley, and known the late Mr. Darcy by character perfectly well. Here consequently was an inexhaustible subject of discourse. In comparing her recollection of Pemberley with the minute description which Wickham could give, and in bestowing her tribute of praise on the character of its late possessor, she was delighting both him and herself. On being made acquainted with the present Mr. Darcy's treatment of him, she tried to remember something of that gentleman's reputed disposition when quite a lad which might agree with it, and was confident at last that she recollected having heard Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy formerly spoken of as a very proud, ill-natured boy."
This is the last passage in chapter 25. It seem that everybody (universally) called him proud. I wonder about that too. Are the servants responsible of this rumor or may be the wicked Wickham spreads that all over the country?
