First 141 words of the document:
Who is he?
Darcy's cousin and nephew to Lady de Catherine de Bourgh
An eligible man
More immediately charming than Darcy
Apparently less charming than Wickham
An honest broker
"Colonel Fitzwilliam's manners were very much admired at the parsonage" (Chapter 31)
"There are not many in my rank of life who can afford to marry without some attention to
money" (Chapter 33)
Inadvertently provides the vital proof that Darcy did lure Bingley away from Jane. He offers a
contrast to all the other eligible men in the novel. He is an honest broker who is totally trusted by
Elizabeth and can vouch for the truth of Darcy's letter.
