Description: 

When he marries again, the painter who married Zilphia is living "in a neighboring state" (379). Mississippi is bordered by Louisiana, Arkansas, Alabama and Tennessee. Tennessee is the most likely of these, in part because the newspaper where Zilphia learns of his new marriage is probably a Memphis paper, and also because the detective agency she hires to keep tabs on his new life is in Memphis. For these reasons we have put this location in Tennessee. It also contains "the hospital" where painter's new wife gives birth (380), and "the street" in front of the hospital where the painter himself is accidentally "killed by a motor car" (381).
