    belief of more than I felt or meant to express

    Marianne reads Willoughby's letter :

    Marianne: “My dear madam, I'm quite at a loss to discover in what point I could be so unfortunate as to offend you. My esteem for your family is very sincere, but if I have given rise to a belief of more than I felt or meant to express, I shall reproach myself for not having been more guarded.

    What does "belief of more than I felt or meant to express" mean?
    Does it mean Willoughby did not intend to offend her?

    Source: Sense and Sensibility is a 1995 American period drama film directed by Ang Lee and based on Jane Austen's 1811 novel of the same name
