|Isn't that what he did for Capt Benwick, too?

in consequence of the missive, Well she's not awake to appreciate his efforts, penned by Jenny Allan
He took the hard task upon himself to break the news that Fanny Harville had died. He left his ship before he had received a leave of absence (which probably could have cost him his position) and went directly to Captain Benwick and "never left the poor fellow for a week; that's what he did, and nobody else could have saved poor James."
Also, remember how he sat down with Mrs. Musgrove and listened to her talk about "Poor Richard." Even though Anne could discern that Wentworth had not liked Dick Musgrove, he listened "with so much sympathy and natural grace, as shewed the kindest consideration for all that was real and unabsurd in the parent's feelings."
It seems to me that Captain Wentworth is a very compassionate man who usually puts the feelings of others around him first.
