in consequence of the missive, Mr. Gardiner's letter, penned by Julianne E.
If Mr. Gardiner had said: "Wickham has debts comming out his ear, but don't worry about it.", Mr. Bennet no doubt would have written to Mr. Gardiner demanding to know how these debts were discharged. By down-playing Wickham's debts, Mr. Gardiner hoped that Mr. Bennet wouldn't ask questions (and perhaps exspose Mr. Darcy's hand in the matter).
Besides, what go would saying what a cad Wickham was do? They were stuck with him and his mode of marrying her made it obvious what sort of man he was anyway.
