I have a question (may be I posted it at a wrong place earlier). In chapter 7, Jane goes to Bingley's house on horseback, because the the horses were engaged in the farm, and she couldn't avail the carriage.
Later, Elizabeth walks there to meet her "as she was no horsewoman, walking was her only alternative." This means, at this point, there was at least one horse for her to avail. Therefore, when Jane had gone, there were at least two of them. Why could she not avail the carriage?
Am I missing something?
