Thanks for those links. The events of that affair parallel the book much more closely than I would have imagined ... and yet even those brief snippets from Catherine and Harry give a sense of much stronger character than Sarah and Henry. The parallels between Bendrix and Greene also seem much stronger than I would have thought - which is not to Greene's credit.
