in consequence of the missive, perverse, penned by Kelly-anne
I do not think Darcy wanted to view the country folks as a perverse entertainment—I am guessing that you mean sort of a looking to find a fault kind of thing which he does to Lizzy as related in Chapter 6. If that had been his idea in attending the assembly then he should have enjoyed himself immensely because he felt everyone but his party was beneath him and therefore plenty of fodder for entertainment in that scenario. However, he does not receive any pleasure from the evening at all according to Chapter 4. When Darcy says he finds this particular assembly insupportable it indicates to me that he does attend assemblies where he has danced so I do not think never attends balls is quite right. However, it is probably correct that his fastidiousness reins supreme in Derbyshire (no Bingley to please as his host) and he avoids balls like the Meryton assembly when at home. ;D
