There is a thread at the regular P&P board about how accurate Elizabeth's judgement of people is. Personally, I think it's good, with two notable exceptions(!). In ch.44, we see her forming three *new* judgements.
1) She concludes that Georgiana is very shy rather than proud (and we are told that Mrs. Gardiner thinks so too).
2) She decides, in a little over half an hour, that Bingley and Georgiana are *not* in love with each other, just as she decided (in a somewhat longer time-frame back at Rosings), that Darcy was not in love with his cousin Anne.
3) During that same half hour, she begins to suspect that Bingley still has feelings for Jane.
Clearly, Darcy's letter has not caused her to lose *too* much confidence in her own judgement. Of course, we have to wait to find out if she's right or not! ;-)
