in consequence of the missive, One of the many reasons why..., penned by Reeba
I really like your reading of this, Reeba; I hadn't thought about it that way before. It seems like he's more astonished than anything else - as you said, he believes she's capable of using better sense, and he didn't expect her to so lead herself astray. We know from this and the next chapter that whatever he's feeling, though, it isn't anger or real disappointment. Oh, what a Henry! :)
Chapters 25-26 are possibly my favorite in the whole book because of the way Henry reacts.
By the way, does it seem to anyone else that from this point forward he teases Catherine a bit less and treats her more seriously? Not serious in an un-Henrylike way, of course. Just...different.
