in consequence of the missive, I see your point..., penned by Lila
... Darcy. She has come to believe that she was wrong about Wickham and to a certain extent, she has come to understand Darcy's point about her family's lack of propriety, even if she hasn't entirely excused his separating Jane and Bingley.
However, Darcy is still the man who insulted her in public at the Assembly, denigrating both her appearance and her consequence, and who dwelled warmly on her inferiority and the degredation it was to marry her in his proposal. Nothing in his letter indicated that Darcy had changed his mind about that. Rather the opposite, if anything.
I agree with Robbin that Lizzy wouldn't be human if she hadn't experienced some twinges when she thought about the life she gave up, but I'm sure if she did, she would remind herself of that proposal, and her regret would disappear -- as it should.
