Summary: 

Quentin remembers the drive with Rosa out to Sutpen's. Rosa notes that the estate is still, somehow, "his and Ellen's and Ellen's descendants" (290). It seems unlikely that she includes Clytemnestra or Jim Bond in that group, so it's not clear whom she might be thinking of. [SOURCE: Quentin]
