in consequence of the missive, So what about James and John?, penned by Lynn
John Thorpe tried to get Isabella and James back together, and became pretty angry and destructive when that didn't happen.
Thorpe ... irritated by Catherineís refusal, and yet more by the failure of a very recent endeavour to accomplish a reconciliation between Morland and Isabella, convinced that they were separated forever, and spurning a friendship which could be no longer serviceable, hastened to contradict all that he had said before to the advantage of the Morlands..
I leave it to my readerís sagacity to determine how much of all this it was possible for Henry to communicate at this time to Catherine, how much of it he could have learnt from his father, in what points his own conjectures might assist him, and what portion must yet remain to be told in a letter from James.
The above suggests a definite break between the friends. I really hope that was the case, for James' sake. It is very promising that James resisted all attempts at reconciliation with Isabella, even though he was in love with her. Overall, I think it bodes well for James.
