I did not see why he should have the pain of another interview with his wife, so I got Mr. Ottery to manage the whole business. It turned out that we need not have harrowed ourselves so much about the agony of mind which Ellen would suffer on becoming an outcast again. Ernest saw Mrs. Richards, the neighbour who had called him down on the night when he had first discovered his wife鈥檚 drunkenness, and got from her some details of Ellen鈥檚 opinions upon the matter. She did not seem in the least conscience-stricken; she said: 鈥淭hank goodness, at last!鈥?And although aware that her marriage was not a valid one, evidently regarded this as a mere detail which it would not be worth anybody鈥檚 while to go into more particularly.
