Furthermore, it was in this building that Finny broke his leg for the second time. The second place he visits is the tree by the river. Gene pushed Finny from the tree and broke his leg the first time. Thus, the narrator is still noting ''how far [his] convalescence had gone'' as concerns his emotional maturity.
