Description: 

The garden fence" between the Compson yard and the farm area has apparently had a hole in it for over a quarter of a century (4). When Luster takes Benjy through this hole to look for the lost quarter, Benjy remembers getting snagged in the same place and presumably on the same nail twenty-five years earlier, while going off the place with Caddy to deliver a message from Uncle Maury to Mrs. Patterson.
