One day, though, Ántonia came back on a wagon, and the next day Mrs. Steavens went to visit to see what had happened. Ántonia tells her that Larry had gotten fired and only lived with her in Denver until her money ran out, and then he left to go to Mexico to cheat railway passengers. Ántonia did not try to get a civil marriage because she didn't want to support him. Mrs. Steavens cries when she hears the story because she thinks Ántonia is a good girl (unlike Lena Lingard). People said "poor Ántonia" had a baby after Larry Donovan ran off and is now alone.
