Ten days later, Strether finds himself at Chad's home in order to speak to Jeanne de  Vionnet at Chad's request. Strether is unsure of the purpose of this talk, and he wonders  what service he is actually rendering Mrs. Newsome even though he has continued  writing his reports to her. Jeanne de Vionnet looks to Strether as if she were a beautiful painting, "a faint pastel in  an oval frame . . . the portrait of a small old time princess." Before they have time to  speak at length, the sculptor Gloriani sits down and engages Jeanne in conversation. In  a conversation with Miss Barrace, Strether asks a "plain question": Will Madame de  Vionnet get a divorce in order to marry Chad? Miss Barrace cannot see the purpose of  such a marriage and offers the opinion that their relationship is "beautiful" as it is and  should simply continue. Strether ponders this but takes satisfaction in his assumption

    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.
