in consequence of the missive, Would Mr Bennet have visited Mr Bingley anyway?, penned by kathleen (elder)
]I wonder if Mr Bennet would have visited a new neighbour even if there were no Bennet daughters? It seems a polite thing to do -- would it be rude not to pay a call? Could Bingley have visited the Bennets without having either an invitation or an earlier visit from Mr Bennet?
I believe Mr Bennet would have visited a new neighbour. Because, as you say, it is a polite thing to do, and it would have been rude of him not to call on Mr Bingley.
And I think, because Mr Bingley is a new neighbour, Mr Bennet should call first before he could have called on the Bennets.
Just my thoughts, not sure if they are right though.
