Reflecting back on Drusilla's story about the locomotive chase, a much older Bayard knows now that the incident involving the two locomotives was done not for "material gain but for principle … the deed done not for the end but for the sake of doing, put to the ultimate test and proving nothing save the finality of death and the vanity of all endeavor" (98).
