Summary of Section XVI
When Mrs. Grose and the children return from church, they say nothing about the governess going off by herself. Mrs. Grose says the children didn't want to make a fuss because Miles had said they must do everything the governess wants. She tells Mrs. Grose about seeing Miss Jessel. She has decided to send for the uncle herself.
Commentary on Section XVI
The sympathy swings back to the governess especially when she says she will write to the uncle. Her seeing the ghost after she has decided to leave makes it seem that it is not her hallucination.
