Description: 

Ernest Cotton's small farm is four miles from the spot where he kills Houston. He lives there alone in "a chinked log cabin floored with clay" that he built himself, "log by log" (153, 155). The house sits on a hill above the "dark band of timber" (155) and the "jungle" (154) that separate his farm from the river. The property also contains a "well-house" (153), the "lot" where Houston's hog spent a winter (158), and a "meager corn patch" (160). It does not appear that Cotton grows any cotton.
