As Chad leaves the station with Sarah, Mamie Pocock, and the maid, Strether and Jim Pocock  depart together in a cab. Strether, buoyed by a smile from Sarah which he interprets as a sign that  he " was  then as much as ever the valued friend of her family," assesses each of the new arrivals.  Even with her apparent good will, Sarah is a threatening figure. He is struck by her resemblance to  her mother, but though he had never known Mrs. Newsome to be unpleasant, he had known Sarah  to be so. Even when pleasant, she "had forms of affability that were in a high degree assertive."  Mamie, Jim's pretty sister of twenty-two years, makes Strether think again of the possibility that  Jeanne de Vionnet might be in love with Chad, and Mamie becomes "the symbol of opposition."

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
