I think the Morlands are just plain practical people. They indulge themselves for a short time in being offended and surprised at the General’s treatment of Catherine and bat around some useless conjecture but it is so unprofitable a business it naturally fades away. I like Mrs. Morland’s advice to Catherine:
“My dear, you give yourself a great deal of needless trouble,” said her mother at last; “depend upon it, it is something not at all worth understanding.” (Ch. 29)
Perhaps it is not completely useless to know of the General’s foolishness and for Catherine to know she had done nothing to earn her boot from NA but otherwise it was hardly worth her understanding because the whole of the General’s conjecture and reliance on John Thorpe is so profoundly stupid.
