I think Emma did write that for the immediate future they should continue their amity through letters only -- re chap 52 --
"It was a very great relief to Emma to find Harriet as desirous as herself to avoid a meeting. Their intercourse was painful enough by letter. How much worse, had they been obliged to meet!"
Emma then arranged for Harriet to visit Isabella --
"The difference of Harriet at Mrs. Goddard's, or in London, made perhaps an unreasonable difference in Emma's sensations; but she could not think of her in London without objects of curiosity and employment, which must be averting the past, and carrying her out of herself."
