Charles Hayter believed there had been an understanding between himself and Henrietta. Fot Henrietta, there was a degree of interest, but only until Wentworth came on the scene.

Charles Hayter was the eldest of all the cousins, and a very amiable, pleasing young man, between whom and Henrietta there had been a considerable appearance of attachment previous to Captain Wentworth's introduction.

Henrietta fully thought so herself, before Captain Wentworth came; but from that time Cousin Charles had been very much forgotten.
