|Will he be in the middle of it without really knowing?

in consequence of the missive, GR: Henry in love?, penned by Cheryl
I made note one in chapter 10 where Henry replies to Catherine's "Who can ever be tired of Bath?-by saying "Not those who bring such fresh feelings of every sort to it as you do...."
Soon after that they agree upon the country walk. Which actually takes place in chap 14 where my second note is.
This in itself is of some significance, but I find his sister's reply to be even more so. She says
Does this betray that when they have been discussing Miss Morland between them, Henry has confessed to Eleanor that he would not mind to further the acquaintance? Or is it just that she has been teasing him with some of Jane Austen's words? How he loves to perform in front of a beautiful girl and have her admire his every word! Perhaps Eleanor has asked him to be careful, since she knows very well that Catherine is attracted to her charming brother.
