Quote #7

Just as she was talking to the porter, the coachman Mihail, red and cheerful in his smart blue coat and chain, evidently proud of having so successfully performed his commission, came up to her and gave her a letter. She broke it open, and her heart ached before she had read it.

"I am very sorry your note did not reach me. I will be home at ten," Vronsky had written carelessly.... (7.31.14-15)

Anna believes that Vronsky no longer cares for her because of the way he communicates to her through a careless note. Is she misinterpreting him? Is this a case of miscommunication?
