While I am inclined to agree with Tori Marie that it would be too sneaky a thing to be a Henry, I do think it is interesting that this is an instant when something good(James getting rid of Isabella for a wife. Imagine what his marriage would have been like!) follows out of something really bad (The appalling misbehaviour of a girl who is determined to catch as big a fish as she can hook).
I think Henry might have told his brother (Frederick asking "Come on Henry, be a sport! Just who are these gals you are entertaining? What are they like?") that while Miss Morland is as pure as snow(Leave her alone, Fred I warn you!), her friend although engaged to her brother does not seem quite as innocent/wellbehaved/faithful as one would have reason to expect.
