Kathy-how you love qualifying statements! To the detriment of Emma3,(and I too have read the book) Mr. Knightley during the proposal scene dates his awakening to Frank Churchill's arrival. "One sentiment having enlightened him to the other." Box Hill is the penultimate moment-when he thinks his worst fears are realized. Emma is under FC's influence. So much in JA is between the lines, but I tend to agree with McGrath-the pianoforte scene(the Frank/Emma duet) is key. And Mr. Knightley is defintely aware of his feelings by the ball-the brother and sister-no indeed.
You beat me to it...but I'm glad you did! :-)
