in consequence of the missive, GR Henry’s intentions II, penned by Shir
I don't think Eleanor would have "included Henry in her observation." Wouldn't that be outside the lines of propriety--to tell someone your conclusions regarding what someone else said??? I do not mean to suggest that Eleanor is running ahead of herself; her conclusions are obviously correct, not merely conjecture, but I still don't believe it would be honorable. I always view Eleanor as another Jane Bennet, always doing exactly what is right. Although Eleanor and Henry are close, I doubt she would feel that she had any right to share her observation of Catherine's feelings towards Henry to Henry.
