in consequence of the missive, Mr. Collins dupes himself, penned by Robbin
"he had a wife in view, as he meant to chuse one of the daughters, if he found them as handsome and amiable as they were represented by common report."--straight out of the pen of the narrator. So how did he hear this?--Regency 7 degrees of separation?
Regarding the chapter 13 line, "he complimented Mrs. Bennet on having so fine a family of daughters; said he had heard much of their beauty, but that in this instance fame had fallen short of the truth;" This is Mr.Collins speaking & therefore the statement is subject to more than a little scepticism (little delicate compliments, etc, etc)
However, narrator statement beats my scepticism. He somehow had heard that they were pretty.
