Albert and Evelina are Charlotte's younger brother and sister. They have a very small role in the novel and don't actually show up until the end. They, too, are shocked by Charlotte's dress and manners when she returns to Rhode Island. Charlotte's father prohibits her from telling Albert and Evelina about her adventures.
