|I think it was all Louisa's doing

in consequence of the missive, Henrietta and Hayter, penned by Cheryl
I think Louisa probably got Henrietta to reluctantly agree to going. Louisa didn't say anything to Mary about the destination because Mary might have talked Henrietta out of going. Henrietta didn't say anything because she maybe was still uncertain on the whole venture and she feared Mary's opinion on the subject.
It's possible at the mention that they were walking to the Hayter's Mary would have really given her an earful. Charles wasn't around to sanction the visit and there is an air of secrecy, perhaps this wasn't enitrely proper for the girls to be doing?
I agree that they probably stopped by the cottage to give themselves an alibi. If their mother inquired where they were, Mary would say, "off on a long walk."
