in consequence of the missive, The real reason for Willoughby's trip is even creepier, penned by Barbara
as a mistress? He may have that in mind when he says, "If, however, I am allowed to think that you and yours feel an interest in my fate and actions, it may be the means -- it may put me on my guard -- at least, it will be something to live for. Marianne, to be sure, is lost to me for ever."
The italicized part (by me) seems to be more of a question than a statement. Of course, he may just be hoping that Marianne, feeling sorry for Willoughby's marital unhappiness, would never marry, as you said.
Perhaps, in a few years, if Marianne still remained unmarried, Willoughby may be tempted to murder his wife. That would make for a good sequel. Austen meets Christie. Lol.
