in consequence of the missive, Lucy--lying, penned by Barbara
Your two first examples are 1)Lucy being evasive & 2)Lucy playing fast & loose with the truth; however, Elinor's impression that Lucy's information about her engagement to Edward was mendacious, was mistaken. Lucy there is perfectly truthful about the facts if not the feelings.
I completely agree that nothing Lucy says is reliable--she flatters & connives, but on the point on which Elinor most wants her to be lying, she is not.
