Mrs. Cook wants Matilda to join her for tea at the Ogilvies' because Mrs. Cook believes that Edward Ogilvie is a good marriage match for Matilda (p. 41). Matilda agrees to go because if she does not attend, she will have to do chores all day long such as scrubbing the kettles clean.
Hope this helps :)
