Re: " You cannot have been always at longbourn!"

IIRC, it is clear in the book that Jane and Lizzy spent much time with their Aunt and Uncle Gardiner in London, around or during their adolescent years. If Uncle Gardiner made a good living in trade, then he is not likely an idiot. Also, he married a woman that seem to have a great deal of sense. I think that is clear in the book, and the actresses of the three color adaptions of P&P reveal that quality. Perhaps Aunt Gardiner was preparing herself as a governess, but saw good qualities in a brother who had a few silly sisters, and decided she could fall into worse situations.

But Darcy doesn't know that about the Gardiners at that point in the novel.
