Description: 

According to the story "Shall Not Perish," published half a year after this one, the seventy-acre farm from which Res Grier and his wife and son eke a living growing corn has been owned by the Grier family for at least several generations. It seems exceptionally poor, even by the standards of Frenchman's Bend. Res himself admits, a bit hyperbolically, that "I don't own anything there that even I would borrow" (34), and at different points in the story has to borrow both a froe and a crowbar from neighbors. The family does have a mule and at least one cow. The farmhouse is within walking distance of the church.
