Godfrey Cass is Squire Cass’ oldest son. He is good-natured, selfish, and weak-willed, and knows what is right but is unwilling to pay the price for listening to his conscience. When he was younger, he married Molly Farren, an opium addict, with whom he had a daughter. Godfrey’s handling of his secret marriage demonstrates a mixture of guilt and cowardice that kept him from really opening up for most of the novel. This secret is kept for most of the novel because Godfrey knows that if word of his marriage goes public, his father will disown him.
He agreed, and they set up a time. The husband expressed uncomfortableness with a man staying at their house that he had never met. His wife asked him to please give Robert a chance. The husband had never met a blind person and relied on stereotypes to try and picture him. "In the movies," said the husband "the blind move slowly and never laugh" he felt uncomfortable and nervous at having a person like that at the house (Gioia 86).

The main character speaks of the blind in a repugnant way. He says things such as “his being blind bothered me” and “a blind man in my house was not something I looked forward to” all within the first paragraph of the story. The author had included in the story that the husband had never met a blind person, so one could deduce that his negativity towards the blind was unfounded and ignorant. His wife, however, did not feel this way towards the blind man, Robert. “They’d become good friends, my wife and the blind man”; she liked him for him, and her willingness to form a friendship with Robert was not dependant on what disabilities Robert did or did not have.

In the next part of the story, this caused fear of being a fool for himself as well as other people. In essence, he didn’t see anything and wore nothing, but he didn’t want to admit it because all people saw and said that it was “the most beautiful in the world” it. It was a fear of social rejection and lacking of knowledge. As the result, his fear and his vanity turned him into the joke. Not only did he live in the fear, but other characters also did fear of saying the truth.
