    Basil, Miss Meadows’s fiancé, never made a physical appearance in the story. Through the letters, we the readers, formed an opinion. The reason for him writing such letters was not known and he came off as a fickle minded person. At one time, Basil wrote a letter calling off the engagement and another time he wrote saying to ignore the previous letter, with no explanation given. He didn’t seem to care much about Miss Meadows’s feelings when he had scratched the word “disgust” lightly in his letter. Whether he was marrying Miss Meadows out of love also seemed doubtful. Basil came off as a cruel and a self-centered man with no care about his fiancé’s feelings.
