Description: 

"Behind drawn shades" in the office of the livery stable is where Eustace Graham plays poker for money during the three years he spends in college and law school (262). The narrative does not explain how he could be both "at the University" and in Jefferson during that time. It may be that Faulkner temporarily forgot that, though based on Oxford, where the University of Mississippi (including its Law School) is located, his fictional "Jefferson" was not a college town.
