in consequence of the missive, Wickham has a tendency to make short-term decisions, penned by Tracy W
I have noticed a lot more during this GR how comments earlier in the novel are repeated (though usually by a different character and not in exact words, of course). In the recap of Mr. Gardiner's letter, we are told ... "It was not known that Wickham had a single relation with whom he kept up any connection, and it was certain that he had no near one living. His former acquaintance had been numerous; but since he had been in the militia, it did not appear that he was on terms of particular friendship with any of them. There was no one therefore who could be pointed out as likely to give any news of him.
Whether he may retain those friends, indeed!
Another example of this is Darcy and Elizabeth try to forget the ridiculous characters surrounding someone they care about (which time and distance help accomplish this). Darcy, speaking of the behavior of the Bennets in his letter, "I had myself endeavoured to forget, because they were not immediately before me" and Elizabeth, on coming to Hunsford, "Absence had increased her desire of seeing Charlotte again, and weakened her disgust of Mr. Collins."
