in consequence of the missive, It does seem as though Pemberley wipes the slate clean, penned by Lila
Remember that she has already read his letter, which caused her to realize that she had misjudged him in many respects. The way I see it, when she arrives at Pemberley she's curious about who he really is. All of the wonderful commendation of Mrs. Reynolds serves to begin painting a picture of his true nature, to which she is receptive because of the letter, though still skeptical. Seeing the portrait gives her another perspective - it shows a more carefree Darcy from the days before his life got so complicated. But she's still not completely convinced - remember how surprised she is at his excellent behavior when they meet a few minutees later and over the next few days. But, when she sees how constant he is in that, she is further encouraged in her new-found good impressions. Even then, though, she has more to learn about his goodness over time before being sure in her new impression of him.
