Biography: 

Philip is "a grave, sober young man of impeccable character and habits" who courts Elly with clock-like regularity (213). As a boy from Jefferson whom she has known "from childhood," Philip is the epitome of a suitable husband for Elly (213). His draw as a suitor is indicated in the same breath as his current occupation: "an assistant cashier in the bank, who they said would be president of it some day" (213).
