Summary: 

Though Drusilla's wartime loss was similar to others, she remains an "incorrigibly individual woman," unlike many veterans who return from war to live on reservations "like so many steers, emasculate and empty of all save an identical experience which they cannot forget" (229). Bayard says he must speak to Father, but first, Drusilla entreats from him another kiss, and concludes the encounter by saying, "Tell John. Tell him tonight" (229).
