Yeah, I think so, and sorry if I've "spoiled" something for you! :-<
Isabella gives Catherine several hints about her preference for James before he appears on the stage which fly right over poor Catherine's head.
Besides the one above, there's
Ch 4: "How excessively like her brother Miss Morland is!"
While I can't recall a physical description of James, he is said to look much like Catherine and she is described in Ch. 1 as having "sallow skin".
These are so subtlely inserted that one cannot really blame Catherine for not getting them, but Isabella's joy upon seeing James and her immediately attaching herself to his side like a barnacle from thereout, one can perhaps, in hindsight, see these as hints, as Isabella "working" on Catherine.
