    Miss Meadows, the protagonist of the short story, was a thirty-year old woman who taught music at a school and was engaged to a man called Basil. Miss Meadows was highly sensitive. She reacted to things very quickly and took things to heart. When she received the letter from Basil, where the latter had written to say that their marriage would be nothing but a mistake, she plunged into grief. Her grief and sadness was reflected through music and nature, showing that she had a connection with them. Whether she was marrying Basil out love was not clear, but it was eminent that she was marrying so that she no longer was a spinster. When she received a telegram where Basil asked her to ignore the previous one, instead of getting mad at Basil and demanding reasons, she was overjoyed at the news. She felt happy as she realized that she would get married soon and would avoid being a spinster. Miss Meadows loved for emotions and music as seen here.
