Description: 

This is the house that the Negro widower "had rented for his wife, his marriage, his life, his old age" (156). But after the death of his wife, it is the scene of his arrest for killing a white man. (As readers of the short story "Pantaloon in Black" or the novel Go Down, Moses would know, the Negro who "cut a white man's throat" is named 'Rider,' and "the house he had rented" was on the McCaslin-Edmonds plantation northwest of Jefferson.)
