Biography: 

The narrator refers to the people of Jefferson several times, usually in connection with rumors and gossip about Susan Reed. The people who "cast the usual aspersions" on Susan's origins are, according to the narrator, "women mostly" (131). The men who frequent the barbershop believe Susan was one of "the bad ones" (135); out of respect for Hawkshaw's feelings, however, they don't talk about her in front of him.
