Description: 

The "Negro cabin" where Bayard, John, and Drusilla sleep in this story was built for slaves. Louvinia's family lived in it until the "big house" was burned down, at which time Bayard and Granny (Rosa Millard) moved in to this cabin. At the beginning of this story it is home to Bayard, Ringo and Louvinia; at the end, Drusilla occupies it by herself. The cabin includes the unlikely features of a porch, "Granny's chair," and a table big enough for John, Bayard, Jenny, Drusilla, and Louisa to eat dinner when Louisa challenges John to marry her daughter (69).
