in consequence of the missive, I quite forgot, penned by Sonja K.
When Thorpe believed James and Isabella wee going to get married, and himself hoped to marry Catherine, he painted them as richer than they were. After he was disappointed, he painted them as poorer than they were!
When Gen Tilney finally came to the "right understanding of Mr. Morland’s circumstances ... It taught him that he had been scarcely more misled by Thorpe’s first boast of the family wealth than by his subsequent malicious overthrow of it; that in no sense of the word were they necessitous or poor, and that Catherine would have three thousand pounds".
