in consequence of the missive, his description  so feelingly attended to, penned by Stephanie
that Benwick accompanied him:
Captain Harville had promised them a visit in the evening; and he came, bringing his friend also, which was more than had been expected, it having been agreed that Captain Benwick had all the appearance of being oppressed by the presence of so many strangers. He ventured among them again, however, though his spirits certainly did not seem fit for the mirth of the party in general. (Ch. 11)
Harville would not have wished that Benwick staid all alone, as you say "indulging in his grief". In chapter 12, he tells Anne that she has done a good deed making Benwick talk, for it was bad for him to be so "shut up".
