Poor Catherine, she is caught red-handed opening the chest! But I love Miss Tilney for providing her friend with a suitable excuse:
"That is a curious old chest, is not it? (snip )How it came to be first put in this room I know not, but I have not had it moved, because I thought it might sometimes be of use in holding hats and bonnets."
It shows her good-nature!
