Philomena Guinea is a wealthy older woman and philanthropist who provides for the scholarship that Esther won to her college. After learning of Esther's suicide attempt through the newspaper coverage of the incident, Philomena Guinea provides for Esther's stay at the mental institution. Despite her kindness and concern for Esther, Esther cannot feel considerably grateful to Philomena Guinea for her financial support.
