Curiosity about a part of Pride and prejudice-①
"What an excellent father you have, girls" said she, when the door was shut. "I do not know how *you will ever make him amends for his kindness*; or me either, for that matter. At our time of life, it is not so pleasant I can tell you, to be making new acquaintance every day; but for your sake, we would do anything."

Question:
I doubt if the structure of "you will ever make him amends for his kindness" is correct. As far as I know, make amends for means to compensate for something and all the structures I've seen was only subject+make amends for+object.
So, you make *him* amends for his kindness...? Shouldn't it be just "you will ever make amends for his kindness" if it means "you will ever pay back / compensate for his kindness"? How come there's a 'him' there?

Thanks A LOT for your help :)
