Why does Mr. Darcy hand-deliver his letter to Elizabeth?
His presence adds credibility to the information within the letter.
Mr. Darcy is in love with Elizabeth and hopes for an opportunity of seeing her.
It is inappropriate for an unmarried man to write a young unmarried lady so he delivers the letter without being seen.
Mr. Darcy hopes Elizabeth will read the letter in front of him which is the custom for lovers of the period.
It is considered more gentlemanly to deliver letters personally rather than through post.
