Summary: 

"It was General Compson" who first realizes how driven Sutpen was during the years between his arrival and the birth of his son (25). (The confusing chronological references in this passage seem deliberate: does it describe something that happened after Compson became "General Compson" in 1864-1865? or something that happened "at this time" in 1833-1839 - decades before Compson became "General Compson"?)
