in consequence of the missive, Different from the novel, penned by Line
I had the impression from P&P2 Lydia and Wickham had little more than a stay overnight at Longbourn. I could hardly believe Lydia's rudeness 'My sisters may write to me. They will have nothing else to do' (JA's words.) The novel says they stayed 'little more than ten days' during which time Mrs Bennet and Lydia went visiting and had frequent parties. As awful as Lydia and Wickham's behaviour was in P&P2, it seems the Bennets fare longer and even worse with their visit.
