George takes an equity interest in the Bakewell & Prentice saw mill, but he too falls ill, and a planned expansion falls behind schedule. John's friends determine that he must go to Italy for his health, but he has no money other than gifts from his friends. Charles Brown writes to George demanding money for John, on the impression that George owes John. George attempts to sell an interest in a steamboat, but never has the funds to send John. Meanwhile George assimilates into Louisville's mores, hiring slaves and developing a Whig political stance.
