in consequence of the missive, Doesn't Catherine spot his main fault on day one?, penned by DeeMac
] "Catherine feared, as she listened to their discourse, that he indulged himself a little too much with the foibles of others."
Yes, I definitely see that. Also, I think Henry has a tendency to be rather too...flippant at times. He has a great sense of humor and I like that, but the drawback is he's not always sincere when he should be (witness Eleanor's constant entreaties that he would "be serious," for example). He conceals too much, as opposed to Catherine who conceals nothing. I think, though, that we see an improvement in this in the latter chapters of the book.
