in consequence of the missive, Mary's attitude to Henry's "games"., penned by Rachel G
As for her power to do anything about Henry, I think a couple of other interpretations are possible:
Her coldness in speaking of Henry's effect on the Miss Bertrams could arise from disapproval of his conduct, and a bit of a sense of resignation, rather than indifference.
She could do more to protect Fanny if she chose (which might be out of character), by quietly tipping her off. "I'm sorry to bother you with this, and sorry to undermine my own brother, but..." Fanny could be more approachable than her cousins on such an errand.
