Mother's attack's on Bingley gives Jane much anxiety. Jane is not like Elizabeth who can both defend herself and go on the attack. Jane is hurt by these attacks but her mild personality enabled to tolerate the abuse,
"But as no such delicacy restrained her mother, an hour seldom passed in which she did not talk of Bingley, express her impatience for his arrival, or even require Jane to confess that if he did not come back she would think herself very ill used. It needed all Jane's steady mildness to bear these attacks with tolerable tranquillity."
