Description: 

"The cabin," as it is called in the story, was originally built behind the plantation's big house as part of the slave quarters. Now, however, the masters live there too: Granny and Bayard moved in there after the Sartoris mansion was burned in "Retreat." In "Raid," Bayard explains that "We lived in Joby's cabin then, with a red quilt nailed by one edge to a rafter and hanging down to make two rooms" (37-38). This arrangement seems still be in place in "Vendee" as Louvinia greets them at the door and the boys go to bed "on the pallet" (116).
