in consequence of the missive, Ch. 2 Mr Weston and Frank..., penned by Moni
"The boy had, with the additional softening claim of a lingering illness of his mother's, been the means of a sort of reconciliation;"
I think it means that there were two things that had been a kind of reconciliation between the first Mrs. Weston and her brother Mr. Churchill:
--she suffered from a lingering illness
The sentence could be read this way: The boy had been the means of a sort of reconciliation, along with the additional softening claim of a lingering illness of his mother's.
