Description: 

The "platoon" of veterans that Percy Grimm organizes to preserve the peace in Jefferson uses the office where he works as a command post, orderly room and, for much of the time, a place to play poker while they are not patrolling the streets around the Square (453). The narrative calls it a "cotton office" (455), which mostly likely means it is involved in buying and selling rather than growing the staple crop of Yoknapatawpha.
