in consequence of the missive, The Reader's Prejudice, penned by Karen Marija
They had not long separated when Miss Bingley came towards her, and with an expression of civil disdain thus accosted her: -- "So, Miss Eliza, I hear you are quite delighted with George Wickham!
This introduction and the sneer she walks away with show that her hope was to take Elizabeth down a peg. (Also, I find her way of calling Elizabeth "Eliza" to be a degradation).
I agree that it's funny how JA used Miss Bingley, whom we all dispise, as a reliable source.
