What is the intention of Colonel Brandon in telling the story of Eliza and Willoughby to Elinor? What is Elinors opinion of the Colonel for sharing the news?

This is in volume 2.

I think it helps to make Marianne feel better for not ending up married to Willoughby, the guy turns out to be all flash and no substance! I think Elinor has a new respect for the Col. Perhaps he might be good for her sister (Marianne) after all.
