Summary

The two men, Darcy and the Colonel, leave Rosings. Elizabeth and Maria plan to leave Hunsford a week later, stopping in London on the way. Elizabeth is eager to reconnect with Jane. She continues to reflect on Darcy's letter, particularly the part about her family's inappropriate behavior.

Analysis

Elizabeth's objections to Darcy are slipping away; she even has to give credit to his misgivings about her family. She reflects that her mother lacks the judgment to restrain her flighty sisters and that her father simply laughs about them. These thoughts foreshadow Lydia's disastrous elopement later in the novel, which, in retrospect, justifies Darcy's concerns and underscores his honorable behavior in acting to save Lydia's reputation.
