|He did think well of Elizabeth's (and Jane's) sense, IMO

in consequence of the missive, Strictly speaking, penned by Lucy Jean
When Elizabeth & Jane returned from Netherfield (Chapter 12), we read this:
"but their father, though very laconic in his expressions of pleasure, was really glad to see them; he had felt their importance in the family circle. The evening conversation, when they were all assembled, had lost much of its animation, and almost all its sense, by the absence of Jane and Elizabeth."
So I think he did think well of both Elizabeth & Jane, and I suspect he took them as seriously as he took anybody.
