in consequence of the missive, If Harriet had Been Available, penned by Jane Marie
Robert Martin (according to Mr. Knightley, see his discussion with Emma about the proposal) had some scruples that Harriet may have been "above him" since Emma started introducing her to good society. Perhaps he wanted to spare her the embarrassment of refusing him in person if she felt that this was the case. (Which puts Mr. Martin in an exquisitely good light, and makes everyone else look quite abominable.)
Emma's influence is indeed worrying. She reminds me a little of Galinda in Wicked: "Elphie, now that we're friends, I've decided to make you my new project". ;-p
