Summary: 

The young men visit Bon's mother, who laughs "harshly and steadily" when she hears that Henry's sister is in love with her son (268). The passage emphasizes how much Quentin and Shreve have "invented," but which is still probably "true enough" (268). [SOURCE: Narrator, Shreve-Quentin, Father]
