Description: 

Located opposite Varner's store, the "hotel" run by Mrs. Littlejohn is a boarding house whose residents are mostly "drummers and livestock-traders" (31) traveling through Frenchman's Bend or staying there on business. The building is described as "a sprawling rambling edifice partly of sawn boards and partly of logs, unpainted and of two storeys" (31). Like Varner's store, it is also a hub of Frenchman's Bend social life and gossip. Throughout The Hamlet, Ratliff will get much of the information about the goings on in town through his conversations at Mrs. Littlejohn's.
