"Do not make yourself uneasy, my love. Wherever you and Jane are known you must be respected and valued; and you will not appear to less advantage for having a couple of -- or I may say, three very silly sisters.
Mr. Bennet is wrong. The younger sisters behavior does de-value and bring disrespect on the older two sister. Elizabeth is aware of this, but cannot bring herself to tell her father the truth -- that The Lydia Factor played a role in the break up of Jane and Bingley.
To tell her father the truth would open her to too many questions that she does not want answer. She evades by answering, It is not of peculiar, but of general evils, which I am now complaining.. Thus, IMO, Mr. B does not take Elizabeth's argument seriously enough.
