Summary: 

Sutpen and Henry are reunited in the bivouac; Henry assumes that his father has learned about the letter Bon wrote Judith, and the decision to marry. Over Henry's resistance, Sutpen tells him that Bon "must not marry" Judith, because Sutpen knows "that his mother was part negro" (283). (Sutpen also confirms that it was Henry, not Bon, who was "hit at Shiloh," 282). [SOURCE: Narrator]
