in consequence of the missive, Is there a difference in Thorpe's behavior w/ men only vs, penned by kathleen (elder)
Another reason the General might give credence to Thorpe is the relationship Thorpe has with Catherine's family. He is a close friend and school chum of her brother James, his sister is engaged to James, and they have all spent a considerable amount of time together in Bath. The General might have known or heard about all or part of this relationship, so his take on Thorpe's revelation of the Morlands' "true" state of affairs has an aura of verisimilitude doesn't it?
