would throw a new light on a reconciliation.
"I don t read Pam s mail" Bobby says when offered the letter.
"I didn t want to read it either. I found it accidentally. But you have to hear part of it. 'Six years of marriage can not easily lie dismissed. Therefore if that means remaining with my husband when it no longer makes me happy, in order to avoid causing him pain, then perhaps that is what I have to do. I know I would be better off if Bobbv just let me go, but it he doesn t. I may have to give in and
return to him. His happiness should lie as important to me as my own. "
The letter has the effect Katherine intends.

Pam meets Bobby for a date—only to discover that Bobby now wants out.
