    She says she wanted to see the moonlight from there and she never gets ill. He is, therefore, more European than he is American. He finds her to be thin but dressed fashionably. Thus, Eugenio holds a great deal of power in the family.

    She has forgiven him his running after Daisy and is cordial to him. Walker snubs her and later tells Winterborne that Daisy will never again be allowed at her home. Daisy contrasts sharply with Winterbourne. Young Randolph is also quite frank: He tells Winterborne with all sincerity that American men are better than European men.

    Walker, an American expatriate, whose moral values have adapted to those of Italian society. Her mother is indulgent, and her father is absent. Maybe young American girls all behave in such a straight forward manner. After a discourse on her bad health, he asks how she likes Rome.
