in consequence of the missive, 10,000 pounds seems to be the minimum, penned by Jerry
Many women had less money than that, and managed to get married. Mrs Bennet had only £4k. Probably its true to say thtat if a man was largely marrying for money, he would not consider women with less than about £10k. Mr ELton marries Miss Hawkins who has "as many thousands as would be called ten".. which is a pretty good forttune.
