General Compson makes a brief appearance here, in Chick's list of "the hunters" who in "the old days" had a wilderness "within twelve miles of Jefferson" in which to pursue deer and bear and wild turkey. Major de Spain heads the list, but it spans classes, races and even species: it includes the mixed race Boon Hogganbeck and "the Negro Sam Fathers," and ends with "Major de Spain's one-eyed hunting mule Alice" (90-91).
