When in Boston he sends a message to Ellen at Parker House, but the messenger  returns saying she is "out." Newland, surprised, walks to Parker House and sees her  sitting on a bench in the Commons. She is startled to see him. Traveling  unconventionally without a maid, she has met an emissary from her husband. The  Count has offered her a huge sum of money if she will return and "sit at the head of his  table occasionally." She refused but is to meet again with the emissary at 11 a.m.  Instead, Newland suggests they take a steamboat ride to Point Arley and dine. Sensing his idea of an "adventure," Ellen writes a note and they take a cab to Palmer  House where she takes the note inside. Newland sees a familiar man that seems out of  place in the crowd while he is impatiently waiting, but he cannot recall his name. They  journey to the steamboat and ride to Point Arley in silence. It is a comfortable silence
