in consequence of the missive, Mrs Bennet and Charlotte, penned by Cheryl
Charlotte is just the most obvious competitor, both in Mrs. Bennet's mind and in the neighborhood. Charlotte for her advanced years (in terms of Bingley's age) and looks less lovely than Jane and Lizzy, is still intelligent, socially adept, and thrifty (if she takes after her mother, who must make do on Sir William's not-overly-large savings). In addition, her father is a knight, which may attract some suitors; and to Mrs. Bennet's chagrin, Charlotte's mother is Lady Lucas, with which Mrs. B seems to have an ongoing game of one-upsmanship.
