He finally realizes that his descendants are not flourishing and this troubles him. Armando takes in Ophelia and finds he doesn't really know what he's supposed to do with her.
    1884 — Having assumed she was already out in society, it is to his great surprise that the girl informs him that she has not debuted. He tries to remedy that but having limited knowledge of debutantes and debuts, the event was not the fashionable ball to be seen at that season, to say the very least. By living in the countryside for the summer, Armando avoids the plague which is a good thing since it would likely have killed him. Later in the year, he allows Ophelia to go off to finishing school and is very relieved to be passing the burden of dealing with the young woman to Mrs. Pendergast.
    Now too old for the finishing school, Ophelia is now solely his responsibility again and this makes him somewhat uneasy.
