Chekhov opted against sending the manuscript by post and, upon returning home, in May, handed it to Vukol Lavrov.

She is full of ambitions, though, and refuses him. For three days Startsev suffers greatly, then learns that she indeed had departed from the town to enroll into the conservatory, settles down into normalcy and soon all but forgets her, remembering his momentary madness with mild amusement.
