Do you think Lucy really confided in Nancy

in consequence of the missive, Steele Sisters (Chapter 37 to 41), penned by Robbin
- perhaps she was just listening at the door. Lucy was aware that Nancy knew her secret since Nancy seems unable to keep her mouth shut about anything but I'm not sure Lucy intended her to know it.
"Oh, la! there is nothing in that . I only stood at the door, and heard what I could. And I am sure Lucy would have done just the same by me; for a year or two back, when Martha Sharpe and I had so many secrets together, she never made any bones of hiding in a closet, or behind a chimney-board, on purpose to hear what we said."
I'm not convinced they were ever really in each other's confidence but they clearly made a habit of snooping.
