This chapter surveys Mary Edwards Bryan's final attempt at Louisiana residence from 1869 to 1875. It delves into her deepening relationship with Myron Napier Bartlett, her possible whereabouts from mid-1869 until mid-1870, conditions at the Red River community of Coushatta, natural and other disasters that devastated the region, her attempts to write for the New Orleans Times and the New Orleans-based Our Home Journal, and her relationship with Republican leader Marshall Harvey Twitchell. The chapter concludes with Mary's renewed attempt to seek an independent life and career, the Atlanta creation by John H. Seals of The Sunny South, Mary's continuing ties with Alexander Stephens, the notorious Coushatta Massacre and her husband’s and son’s parts in it, her acquaintance with James Cephus Derby of D. Appleton and Company, an encounter with Madame Octavia Walton Le Vert, and her 1875 return to Atlanta.
