in consequence of the missive, Mary is not a candidate as a wife for Mr. Collins..., penned by Mary-L
I've always thought Mr Collins was carrying out instructions of Lady Catherine concerning marriage. My thought was if she'd been intially singled out as a choice- her music and reading, she might've stood a chance. But I have to agree Mary's pedantic, preachy manner would antagonize Lady Catherine. I doubt her father would bother to warn her against this attidude. She wouldn't understand anyway, so perhaps it was better he marry Charlotte Lucas. At least she was a family friend.
