When Mrs Peters spoke about Minnie being worried about her preserves Henderson interjected with “Held for murder, and worrying about her preserves!” showing he does not understand or care about what Minnie thinks. Mr Henderson is just there to find evidence to charge Minnie Wright with the murder of her husband. We know this from reading “I guess before we 're through with her, she may have something more serious than preserves to worry about”.
