in consequence of the missive, Well,, penned by Deborah Y
Montoni keeps his wife (Emily's aunt) imprisoned in a secret room somewhere unknown to anyone, thus leading to this suspicion.
The suspicion of murder also arises from the same source - the book -from the fact that the Marquis de Villeroi murdered his wife by poisoning her, and when she died the colour of the corpse turned black.
Eleanor was not there to 'see' the body and Catherine imagines no one was there except the General.
The LOL part is that after the death of the Marchioness the room was untouched for 20 years, and in the case of Mrs. Tilney only 9 years had elapsed which was;
..a trifle of time, compared with what generally elapsed after the death of an injured wife, before her room was put to rights.
Thus her avid interest in exploring the room to find out the truth.
Henry seems to say that murder cannot be hushed up especially when it involves important people.
