"...Prepare for your sister-in-law, Eleanor, and such a sister-in-law as you must delight in! -- Open, candid, artless, guileless, with affections strong but simple, forming no pretentions, and knowing no disguise."
"Such a sister-in-law, Henry, I should delight in," said Eleanor, with a smile.
Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems to me that Henry is talking about Catherine as Eleanor's sister-in-law, even though he had just been speaking of Isabella. Is he giving credit to Catherine for telling them of Isabella's engagement?
Is there something that I'm missing here?
