Darl - Chapter 52 Summary

The Bundrens approach the town of Jefferson. Before they enter the town, Dewey Dell asks to take a bathroom break. When the wagon stops, she runs into the bushes with her package, and then runs back, dressed in her nice clothes. Meanwhile, Anse continually wonders aloud why he did not call ahead to have a grave dug, but Jewel adamantly demands that they can do it themselves.
