Description: 

What Bayard calls "the bottom" (61) refers to the low land lying along the creek. He refers to the same site as "the sawmill," (62) "the mill" (65) and "the log-yard" (64), because to get lumber to rebuild the big house the Sartorises have set up a "bandsaw" (64) there to cut the cypress and oak trees into boards. A "blind-folded mule" provides the power to turn the saw blade (64).
