Description: 

Devries is introduced as "a man from one of the eastern counties in our [Congressional] district" (133-34). Later the county is identified as "Minton County," a fictional place like Yoknapatawpha (137). When Faulkner included the events of this story in the novel The Mansion (1959), he renamed it "Cumberland County," also an invented name.
