    Hello light
    I was curious so I found and read O'Henry's 'A Retrieved Reformation' Yes,I guess you could say it means regaining virtues or rediscovering a 'straight' life or making an improvement.Do you just want to know what he meant by A Retrieved Reformation or do you want two synonyms which can replace the two words?If you just want to know what is meant by the title ,it means that Jimmy Valentine,having fallen in love with Annabel Adams decides to improve his ways and lead an honest life.
