in consequence of the missive, Mr Bennets relation to his daughters, penned by Johanna Elisabet
I would go with the former. Whenever Mr. Bennet talks of silly daughters/sisters he usually says "three". I especially think that he is being sarcastic from the next lines:Mary could not think of anything to say and he says: "While Mary is adjusting her ideas...". He does not take her seriously at all. IMHO, this is because that she reads a great deal, but without really improving or broadening her mind.

I'm sure that Jane always had value to him.
