Description: 

The last time the Bundrens stop before reaching Jefferson "aint over a mile" from town. For the last several miles on the road they have been seeing signs advertising the stores of Jefferson. At the "foot of a hill where the road flattens between close walls of trees" Dewey Dell insists they stop so she can change into her best clothes (227). While they are stopped a car passes them, the first automobile that is mentioned on their entire trip.
