Book 3, Chapter 6 Summary

Oliver and Susan Ward board a train east, so that Oliver can build a mill ditch in Deadwood, Wyoming, and so that Susan can visit friends and family in New York. The narrator intrudes to reflect that he wishes he could have been there to advise his grandfather "to forget Deadwood." As Susan travels across the country by train, she rehearses how to put a positive spin on the latest development in her husband's career, especially when she visits Augusta and Thomas. She is tormented by the idea that her husband must ride a stagecoach four days after disembarking at the train station, and she struggles to find any kind of silver lining in their situation. When she arrives in Poughkeepsie to visit her family, she learns that Augusta and Thomas have just left for Europe for a rest following Thomas' breakdown.
