Mrs. Ramsay expresses worry regarding Nancy's whereabouts, and she questions Prue. In response to her mother's question, Prue Ramsay, "in her considering way," says she thinks Nancy is with Minta Doyle and Paul Rayley: "Yes ... I think Nancy did go with them."
This chapter compresses time in its brevity, in that it reduces Mrs. Ramsay's worry into a single sentence. Mrs. Ramsay suffers her anxiety alone, because Mr. Ramsay, who also minimizes Mrs. Ramsay's feelings, has advised her not to worry about the children.
