Description: 

"The house was a cabin," writes the narrator as Bayard approaches this location (360). That means Negroes live there, in this case a husband, wife and three children whose names are never given. It is further from Jefferson than the MacCallum place, on the road but in a very isolated part of the country, but how much further is not specified. Bayard spends Christmas Eve in the hayloft of the barn, and in the morning has breakfast and Christmas dinner with the family in the cabin before the man takes him eight miles further to the next town.
