This chapter takes up the story on January 6, 1928, the day of the wedding of George and Josephine. George came home at two o'clock in the afternoon on that day since the bureau closed at four, but Josephine was not ready and she had to hurry. George and Josephine went to the subway station and took an express down to the Municipal Building. Then they went in to be married by the justice of the peace, and they were the last couple to be married that day.
