Chapter 27 Summary

Jos escorts Amelia back to the hotel, where Dobbin and several soldiers are waiting for them. They all comment on how lovely and nice Amelia is, and Dobbin likes them all the more for saying so. Amelia gets invited to a military party by Mrs. O'Dowd, who is to be her escort in Belgium. Mrs. and Major O'Dowd turn out to be a loud and jolly couple who have traveled the world with the military. They are well respected and liked, although everyone finds them crude and makes fun of their thick accents. Mrs. O'Dowd fills Amelia in on the gossip and life of a soldier's wife. Everyone likes her immediately, but the women become jealous when the men are so kind to her. The chapter ends with Dobbin watching the lights in George's bedroom later that night, staying awake until morning in his sadness.
