|I don't see any evidence

in consequence of the missive, Just Joking, penned by Robbin
Emma had feelings, less of curiosity than of pride or propriety, to make her resolve on not being the last to pay her respects; Ch. 32
Emma, in the meanwhile, could not be satisfied without a dinner at Hartfield for the Eltons. They must not do less than others, or should be exposed to odious suspicions, and imagined capable of pitiful resentment. Ch. 34.
Therefore, I still think that she is joking when she has that conversation with poor Mr. Woodhouse.
As for the Cole's party, I honestly don't think that Emma neglected to pay the basic curtesy of greeting to either Jane Fairfax or Miss Bates (and the reverse is true as well- they could always approach her too). However, I can't find any evidence whether she did or not, so I will have to leave it at that. :-)
