Summary: 

Shreve interrupts his own story to anticipate Bon recuperating after being wounded at Pittsburgh Landing, perhaps then realizing that the lawyer has beaten him. According to this account, it was then that Bon received the photograph of the "octoroon" and "the child," in a letter from her suggesting that the lawyer has murdered Bon's mother and fled (271).
