An extension of the previous chapter, this chapter follows Barbara and Robert on their journey east to New York. A series of ill-fated events, occurring after their acceptance of a dancing engagement in Chicago, lands Robert in trouble with the law, renders him and Barbara destitute, and causes them to become stranded in Michigan, their hopes of reaching New York nearly destroyed. Barbara, buckling from overwork, nervous strain, and drinking to excess, becomes ill, adding to their woes. Arriving in New York at last, Barbara and Robert nonetheless take Broadway by storm—for a time. Barbara suffers a nervous breakdown and is made to enter a sanitarium.
