In "The Slave Dancer", the resolution comes when Jesse returns home after voyaging on the slave ship. His past aspirations of being a rich man are put aside because he does not want to contribute in any way to the slave trade. Instead, he moves north to Rhode Island where he becomes a pharmacist, and later fights for the North in the Civil War. He avoids music for the rest of his life, trying to avoid being reminded of the dancing slaves.
