in consequence of the missive, Chapter 11-the MIss Bingley Follies, penned by Tara O'Donnell
"Eliza Bennet," said Miss Bingley.... "is one of those young ladies who seek to recommend themselves to the other sex by undervaluing their own; and with many men, I dare say, it succeeds. But, in my opinion, it is a paltry device, a very mean art."
"Undoubtedly," replied Darcy, to whom this remark was chiefly addressed, "there is meanness in all the arts which ladies sometimes condescend to employ for captivation. Whatever bears affinity to cunning is despicable."
Miss Bingley was not so entirely satisfied with this reply as to continue the subject.
I love that. Darcy knows that Caroline is out to "catch" him if she can, and he tells her so in no uncertain terms, whilst still seeming perfectly civil. However, she isn't one to back down. She will next try becoming extremely fond of books, etc. etc.
