Description: 

Although there must have been a number of slave cabins in the quarters of the Sartoris place, Faulkner only mentions two, both identified with the slaves who worked in the big house rather than in the fields; after the Yankees burn down the mansion, both cabins are eventually occupied by whites as well as blacks. This one is called "the other cabin" (62). Joby lives here throughout the story. Ringo and Louvinia move into it after Colonel Sartoris and Drusilla return from the war. By the end of the story, they are joined by the Colonel and Bayard.
