in consequence of the missive, GR: Catherine needs a SUTH..., penned by Cheryl
Isn't it interesting that Catherine did not seem to learn from her previous two experiences with unfounded imagining: the non-adventures in her own room, with the white cotton counterpane in the chest and the washing-bills in the cabinet. After each of those incidents, she is shamed and humbled -- "Heaven forbid that Henry Tilney should ever know her folly!" Yet mere hours after the washing-bills incident, she is once more letting her fancy run wild, speculating about the General's character. I guess Henry's reprimand was indeed necessary to finally dislodge Catherine's persistent fanciful notions.
