Notes: 

Charles Mallison and Gavin Stevens arrive at the Backus-Harriss plantation, and Stevens sweeps Mrs. Harriss off her feet some twenty years after he fell for her after returning from war.

Summary: 

Uncle Gavin is "still talking" as they reach the plantation, but not about his past, or his once-and-soon-to-be-again betrothed; instead, he talks about the "gargantuan" size of Mr. Harriss' redesigned plantation house (249).
