About two weeks later at the cathedral of Notre Dame, which he has taken to visiting frequently as a  "refuge from the obsession of his problem," Strether sees Madame de Vionnet sitting in the church.  Seeing her reinforces his determination to help her: ". . . he had resolved that he  would  stick, and at  no moment since had it seemed so easy to do so." They walk about and speak briefly there, then go  to a place nearby on the left bank to have lunch. Strether feels very sharply "the sense that the  situation was running away with him." Madame de Vionnet asks if Maria is still away, and Strether  indicates that he has not heard from her in three weeks. Madame de Vionnet then asks him what he  had meant, at their earlier meeting, when he said he would try to "save" her. Strether replies that he  had written immediately afterwards and again, later, to Mrs. Newsome, to explain his opinion of Chad  and Madame de Vionnet, and that he is now awaiting Mrs. Newsome's reply.
