Description: 

Boon and Isaac McCaslin take a train to Memphis where Boon frequents a saloon using a dollar Isaac gives to him, and gets progressively more drunk in the train station's wash-room and a restaurant. The text describes bustling life in the city's streets with "the big Norman draft horses, the Pecherons; the trim carriages from which the men in fine overcoats and the ladies rosy in furs descended and entered the station" (221).
