Summary: 

Bayard interrupts his recounting of Aunt Louisa Hawk's third letter to relate an anecdote about Mrs. Compson's husband, who had been "locked up for crazy a long time ago" because of his predilection of shooting sweet potatoes off the heads of slave children, explaining this odd habit by saying "he might miss a potato but he wasn't going to miss a nigger" (193).
