in consequence of the missive, Is it possible that Darcy is also referring, penned by kathleen (elder)
Mr Bennet was not even present at some of these social events when he might have been expected to be - neglecting perhaps his duty as a chaperone to his daughters and leaving them to the less than socially polished direction of his wife. His absence from the first Meryton assembly suggests this as a possibility. If any the 4 dinners Jane had spent in Bingley's company were at Longbourne, he may well have escaped to his library, leaving Darcy and Bingley to an evening controlled largely by Mrs Bennet - hardly likely to impress Darcy on either score :) .
