in consequence of the missive, Admiral Croft and his accidental hearing..., penned by Emmy
I doubt that the hearing is really accidental. Perhap Mr Shepard or some one else who knows was having a conversation with Admiral Croft and mentioned it to him, but made it seem like an accidental mentioning, therefore the accidental hearing.
I think that it is possible that many know or guessed Sir Walter's financial state, for the reasons you mentioned.
