Description: 

The "Old Frenchman place" is the antebellum plantation after which Frenchman's Bend is named. In other novels the Frenchman himself is named, and the plantation and especially its big house are described in more detail. In this novel it is mentioned as part of the dowry that came to Flem Snopes when he married Eula Varner (5), and the ruined "rose garden" on the property figures as the site where Flem buried "them sixty silver dollars" that baited the trap that Ratliff, Armstid and Bookwright fell into (141).
