Tender is the Night Book 2, Chapter 19

Dick arrived in New York where he saw some familiar sights, but realized that he had no more connections to the place and he would probably not come back. Dick's father was buried next to many of their other relatives. "Good-by, my father--good-by, all my fathers," he says. Book 2, Chapter 19, pg. 205 On the boat ride back, Dick spoke with Albert McKisco, a popular novelist of the time who was modest about his success. Violet McKisco was also aboard and Dick noticed that she was now a charming married woman.

Dick arrived in Naples and saw Rosemary--the person he had come to see. She ran over to him and told him of the newest play she was making, and then ran off in a hurry. She told Dick to call her the next day. He thought about Rosemary and compared her youthful energy to his daughter's. It had been four years since they had met--he was now 38 and she was 22. Dick remembered the emotional state he had been in when he and Rosemary first met each other.

Dick ran into Collis Clay, a friend of he and Rosemary's, at the bar and asked Dick if he knew that Rosemary was there. Collis told Dick how Rosemary has become a woman of the world, much different from the young girl they had known.
