|Yes, but it wasn't concern...

in consequence of the missive, Mr Bennet did charge off to London in search of Lydia, penned by Tracy W
...that motivated Mr. Bennet to charge of to London but rage: "When the first transports of rage which had produced his activity in seeking her were over, he naturally returned to all his former indolence."
That doesn't imply any concern for Lydia herself at all, and that once his anger died down, so did his motivation to do anything actively.
I agree that his behavior doesn't seem to have much to do with pride, but I can't agree, given the above quotation, that it had much, if anything, to do with personal concern for Lydia.
