Description: 

Many of the men in the mob outside Sutpen's wedding are "stock traders and hostlers and such" from "the drovers' tavern on the edge of town" (39). The novel does not specify which "edge," but a "drover" is someone who moves animals or freight from one place to another, so we locate it on the Memphis side of Jefferson.
