in consequence of the missive, GR: The Morlands letting Catherine go to NA, penned by Kristen G.
I suspect that Catherine has been writing letters home, and would have mentioned the Tilneys in those letters and so her parents would have caught a glimpse of their character and Catherine's affection for them.
And Henry being a clergyman, and the General's wealth and connections - perhaps they viewed it as a good opportunity for Catherine?
