Biography: 

In this story Vernon Tull is "a well-to-do bachelor" (142) who can cover the note for "one thousand dollars" with which he buys a one-third share of the Old Frenchman's place (149). He accepts the way Flem has fooled him and his two partners with a kind of philosophical detachment. (When Faulkner revised the events of this story for inclusion in The Hamlet, he replaced Tull with a character named Odum Bookwright.)
