in consequence of the missive, "Obvious?" I disagree, penned by Cathy Allen
She simply cannot stop talking about Captain Tilney in the letter she is writing to Catherine to try to win back James. She is pining for him even while she is denying it. She thinks highly of his taste when compared to James (although she does question Tilney's truthfulness).
The very fact that she broke her engagement with James without any definite word from Captain Tilney is also a clue that she was not thinking with her usual clear-headed self-interest. Yes, she was flattered by the Captain's attentions, but I think she started caring for him as well.
