I agree he was unjust to Anne. The conversation you quote from chapter 10 also makes me wonder if Fredrick considers Henrietta yielding to Mary and Anne yielding to Lady Russell to show an equal degree of indecisiveness. IMO they are very different. In Henrietta’s case it’s only Mary, a rather silly person, who is opposed to Henrietta marrying Charles Hayter. “Charles's attentions to Henrietta had been observed by her father and mother without any disapprobation.”
In Anne’s case she is yielding to the persuasion of a woman who is almost like a mother to her and who has brought up valid concerns. I also wonder if Frederick also fails to grasp how important Lady Russell is to Anne.
