Most Significant

“Mrs. Westenra has confided to me that her doom is spoken—disease of the heart—though poor Lucy does not know it yet. I am sure that there is something preying on my dear girl's mind.”

Could the thing that is bothering Lucy be her mother’s serious illness? Perhaps she even fears that her mother is dying? That would be very distressing for any nineteen-year-old.

Also, Holmwood is being rather free with Mrs. Westenra’s secret, as it doesn't seem she has given permission for her future son-in-law to tell anyone else.
