The Pattersons live next door to the Compsons. Maury Bascomb had an affair with Mrs. Patterson when the Compson children were young. At least once Caddy takes her a letter from "Uncle Maury," and sometime later Benjy tries to deliver another. On that occasion we hear her call Benjy "you idiot" as she tries to grab the letter before her husband can reach him (13).
