First of all, the story describes different traditional views of society, where Miller's family is out of the "normal frame."Mrs. Costello, the Winterbourne's aunt doesn't like the relationship of her nephew and Daisy. "But I really think that you better not meddle with little American girls that are uncultivated, as you call them. You have lived too long out of the country. You will be sure to make some great mistake," (15) Said Mrs. Costello to Winterbourne. She doesn't like Millers because of their close relationship with courier. She also thinks Daisy is a shameless girl for agreeing to visit the Castle with Winterbourne after they have known each other for only couple hours. "Flirting is a purely American custom; it doesn't exist here,"(48) she says. Mrs. Costello is an American woman, who has lived in Europe so long, that she forgot that Daisy is just a typical American girl and acts different from Europeans ladies only because she grew up without any restrictions.
