Description: 

"Old Man Anse Holland," as Ratliff calls him (33), lives within walking distance of the farm that Ab Snopes is farming as his tenant. Holland is clearly wealthier than most of the farmers in the area: he owns a number of mules, and never seems to miss any of the possessions that Pap trades away. Although Ratliff "walks up" to his place, he doesn't describe it. It's referred to at one point in The Hamlet as "the Holland farm" (35), but since Holland is a landlord with tenant farmers on their own places some distance apart, we assume he's a major landowner, and on that basis identify his place as a big house.
