Description: 

The "old road" to the Old Frenchman place was probably part of the plantation. "For almost sixty years" it has not been used, and according to the narrator, "so peaceful" that entering it from "the broad valley highway" feels like "another world" (135). The bridge that once crossed the "branch"- i.e. the stream - has "vanished" (135). We have drawn it as connected to the "highway" - which is Faulkner's term for the county's main roads, but this highway is unpaved too - at both ends, since in order to avoid being seen Suratt usually "enters the [Frenchman] place" from the back (140).
