Ellen is Mr. and Mrs. Foster’s only daughter who married a Frenchman and relocated to Paris where she had three children. The Fosters have never met their grandchildren, although Ellen often sends photographs and Mrs. Foster often sends packages, which makes it seem that Ellen and her mother (though not her indifferent father) are close. In the story, Mrs. Foster makes the trip to Paris to visit Ellen and has a marvelous time, implying that she may relocate to be with her daughter once her husband is out of the picture.
