Biography: 

Mrs. Littlejohn is a hard-working, pragmatic widow and the owner of Littlejohn's Hotel, the boarding house where the narrator stays when he is in Frenchman's Bend. The narrator tells us that during the horse auction "she would stand at the fence a while and then go back into the house and come out again with a arm full of wash and stand at the fence again" (169); she is watching the behavior of "them fool men" (174) as she goes about her work as a business woman. She is also protective of the welfare of those involved in the horse-sale, especially the ill-fated Armstids, and most especially Mrs. Armstid.
