Cathy’s letter is very tender and sweet, and the description of the wear and tear caused by Heathcliff’s rereading of it, very poignant. It’s nice to think that she might have tried to explain her actions to him – even if the tone of the letter is passive aggressive.
One thing – in the novel, Cathy did not know that Heathcliff could hear her when she declared that Heathcliff was beneath her as a marriage partner. Nellie, who could see him, withheld the fact that Heathcliff stood behind Cathy eavesdropping. Too, it seems Cathy never found out about Nellie’s treachery in this particular case.
Second thing - it seems odd that Nellie would withhold this letter, since younger Catherine was well aware of her mother’s love for Heathcliff by the end of the novel. But perhaps Nellie plans to spring it on future generations of Earnshaw/Lintons at the moment that would most benefit her, which would be very much in line with Nellie’s self-serving nature. On the other hand maybe Nellie keeps it secret out of spite, also well within her character.
Last thing – Nellie oversteps the bounds of a servant when she decides to keep the letter, after all it now rightfully, belongs to her employers, Catherine and Hareton, who are both adults at this point, being 18 and 23 respectively. This is a continuation of Nellie’s toxic meddling which few question, even after one hundred sixty-two years. It seems the world is full of Lockwoods, and perhaps that was one of Emily Bronte’s points.
Overall well done.

Very touching-if he hadn't run off-things might have been better; but it would have been a different story entirely.
