The motorcade transporting Dick and Perry arrives in Garden City. A large crowd has been waiting throughout the day to see them into the courthouse, and the town officials expect the congregation to be rowdy and abusive to the men. However, “when the crowd caught sight of the murderers, with their escort of blue-coated highway patrol-men, it fell silent, as though amazed to find them humanly shaped” (248).
