Description: 

Sometime after the Civil War, Philip and Melisandre move into a house where Bayard sees "framed under glass" Granny's letter about the death of Lieutenant P. S. Backhouse (696). The story provides no clue about where the couple is living, but a generation or two later Melisandre Backus grows up in Jefferson; her marriage to Gavin Stevens is narrated in The Mansion (1960). On that basis we have located this house in town.
