He settles down and stops his wandering.......

"Strickland and Miss Youghal were married, on the strict

understanding that Strickland should drop his old ways, and stick

to Departmental routine, which pays best and leads to Simla.

Strickland was far too fond of his wife, just then, to break his word, but it was a sore trial to him; for the streets and the bazars, and the sounds in them, were full of meaning to Strickland, and these called to him to come back and take up his wanderings and his discoveries."
