"I have just had a letter from Jane, with such dreadful news. It cannot be concealed from any one. My youngest sister has left all her friends -- has eloped; -- has thrown herself into the power of -- of Mr. Wickham. They are gone off together from Brighton. You know him too well to doubt the rest. She has no money, no connexions, nothing that can tempt him to -- she is lost for ever."
What an excellent summary of the events by Elizabeth considering her emotional state at the time. Jane's letter is similar to Darcy's letter in the fact that Elizabeth has an emotional upheaval after each.
1. Her pale face and impetuous manner
2. Elizabeth hesitated, but her knees trembled under her, and she felt how little would be gained by her attempting to pursue them.
3. On his quitting the room she sat down, unable to support herself, and looking so miserably ill
4. I am only distressed by some dreadful news which I have just received from Longbourn."
5. She burst into tears as she alluded to it, and for a few minutes could not speak another word.
6. "When I consider," she added, in a yet more agitated voice, "that I might have prevented it!
7. I have not the smallest hope.
8. She could neither wonder nor condemn, but the belief of his self-conquest brought nothing consolatory to her bosom, afforded no palliation of her distress. It was, on the contrary, exactly calculated to make her understand her own wishes; and never had she so honestly felt that she could have loved him, as now, when all love must be vain.
9. But self, though it would intrude, could not engross her. Lydia -- the humiliation, the misery she was bringing on them all, soon swallowed up every private care; and covering her face with her handkerchief, Elizabeth was soon lost to everything else
10 .Elizabeth felt how improbable it was that they should ever see each other again on such terms of cordiality as had marked their several meetings in Derbyshire; and as she threw a retrospective glance over the whole of their acquaintance, so full of contradictions and varieties, sighed at the perverseness of those feelings which would now have promoted its continuance, and would formerly have rejoiced in its termination.
11. she saw him go with regret;
12. found additional anguish as she reflected on that wretched business.
13. Surprise was the least of her feelings on this development. While the contents of the first letter remained on her mind, she was all surprise -- all astonishment
14. She was wild to be at home
15. Elizabeth, though expecting no less, thanked him with tears of gratitude
