Pruitts appear in two different texts - "That Will Be Fine" (1935) and "Tomorrow" (1940) - but there seems to be no connection between the group in each text. In "Tomorrow" Rufus Pruitt is a working-class farmer, a sharecropper's son. He and his mother narrate part of the Fentry-Thorpe saga, helping Chick and Gavin to solve the mystery of Stonewall Jackson Fentry's behavior.
