the consequence he was wounding
"His sense of her inferiority - of its being a degradation- of the family obstacles which judgment had always opposed to inclination, were dwelt on with a warmth which seemed due to the consequence he was wounding, but was very unlikely to recommend his suit "
I don't understand the "a warmth due to the consequence he was wounding" part. Would someone here be so kind to explain what this archaic English means please. Thanks a lot.
