in consequence of the missive, Caroline at Neatherfield, penned by Johanna Elisabet
I think most readers at this point don't really like Caroline Bingley very much, so when she warns Lizzy about Wickham, the reader dismisses her statements as readily as Lizzy does.
I had never noticed this before, and it made me smile to realize that JA had caught me up in trusting the amiable characters and disliking the prideful ones. Because we all know that though Caroline doesn't have first-hand knowledge of the situation, her words are truer than she realizes.
