in consequence of the missive, Mr K's opinions of Mr Churchill, penned by Elbč
If we are told that Emma said "a good deal more than she felt." I think this is because at this moment she was occupied with Harrietīs grief and her own misbehaviour rather than with the coming of Frank Churchill.
Just one passage before it says: Emma was not at this time in a state of spirits to care really about Mr. Frank Churchill's not coming, except as a disappointment at Randalls. The acquaintance at present had no charm for her.
I could imagine that during the discussion with Mr.Knightley she just got interested in Frank Churchill again, because Knightley didnīt have a good word to say about him. So she couldnīt resist to contradict him and tell him her real thoughts (which again tend to be very biased - but this is another theme...)
