The London doctors think Eugene has a nervous, rather than vaso-motor malady; has had a letter from Adele Alfierei, and will visit her for two days; realizes her attitude towards Mary Robinson's engagement vascillates, but she only cares about Mary's "moral dignity, which means her essential happiness"; feels that her friendship with Mary has been hurt by Mary's engagement; "I feel a wretched, helpless idiot."
