Jane learns that Mrs. Reed feels badly for mistrating her as a child. She learns that Mrs. Reed withheld correspondence from Jane's paternal uncle out of spite. Jane however takes the moral high ground and offers forgiveness. She also asks Mrs. Reed to, "Forgive me for my passionate language: I was a child then; eight, nine years have passed since that day."
