in consequence of the missive, "A pint of porter ... at Marlborough was enough to overset m, penned by Tom P2
..."The two beers I had with my supper a few hours ago were enough to make me still drunk now" - NOT. Also, remember that JA's contemporaries would have been used to having something alcoholic with most meals, so a pint of porter with food would have been no big deal. I think what Willoughby is implying is that Elinor can't use the excuse of drunkeness to refuse to listen to his story.
P.S: I also find that Elinor lets Willoughby off very easily, even though I still feel (sorry, Barbara!) that in his own way he really does love Marianne.
