in consequence of the missive, 15 paragraphs to tell Wentworth's side of the story (long), penned by Jenny Allan
"He would gladly weaken, by any fair means, whatever feelings or speculations concerning him might exist" (ch 23)
It was all speculation concerning himself and Louisa. If his absence could ease that speculation ("Maybe we were wrong and he doesn't love her - he'd be hovering over her if he did") all the better. He saw that move as "fair means" not abdicating his responsibility. If Louisa et al still felt they were bound to each other when she'd recovered, he'd marry her.
Anne and Frederick are the rare instance of absence making the heart grow fonder. It usually makes one forget, and Frederick was hoping that would be the case here. I can't blame him much for giving it a shot.
