While Winterborne is talking with the young boy, they notice a pretty girl approach. The boy  announces that it is his sister and Winterborne observes that American girls are indeed pretty. The  young lady approaches and begins to reprimand young Randolph for various things. As she talks  with her brother, Winterborne observes that she is a very charming creature who seems to have a lot  of confidence in life. He offers a passing remark to her and then wonders if he has been too forward. In Geneva, "a young  man wasn't at liberty to speak to a young unmarried lady save under certain rarely occurring  conditions." But Winterborne tries to make another remark: He asks her if they are planning to go to  Italy. After a few more remarks, he is able to determine that the young lady is "really not in the least  embarrassed." In fact, she seems perfectly relaxed and composed.
