in consequence of the missive, Darcy is innocent, penned by Nasima
] As you see it is Elizabeth's thinking and attributing, it is not at all what JA means. Here ,IMHO, JA showes us what Lizzy thought about Darcy and how she had analyzed the whole matter of separating her sister from Bingley.
I can see that. ;-) However, I am afraid that this is the narrator's information, no Lizzy's speculation. It includes information Lizzy could not know: "Not a syllable had ever reached [Miss Bingley] of Miss Darcy's meditated elopement. To no creature had it been revealed, where secresy was possible." It is also stated with certainty, which Lizzy's specution could hot have had.
Even Darcy admitted in his letter that he had mixed motives.
