Description: 

The "worthless piece of land which had been a portion of Mrs. Snopes's dowry" is not identified in this story, but from The Hamlet (1940) we know that it is the antebellum plantation called the Old Frenchman Place. In that later work readers also learn the deception by which Flem tricked V.K. Suratt into trading his share of the restaurant in Jefferson for it.
