in consequence of the missive, Lady C 's intellegence....., penned by Nasima
In his letter to Mr Bennet with congratulations on Jane & Bingley being engaged, Mr Collins says that he & Charlotte had learned of the likelihood of Elizabeth & Darcy also becoming engaged. He goes on to say that he informed Lady Catherine of this news.
Here are pertinent portions of the letter (Chapter 57):
"Having thus offered you the sincere congratulations of Mrs. Collins and myself on this happy event, let me now add a short hint on the subject of another; of which we have been advertised by the same authority. Your daughter Elizabeth, it is presumed, will not long bear the name of Bennet after her elder sister has resigned it, and the chosen partner of her fate may be reasonably looked up to as one of the most illustrious personages in this land.
