In Sanctuary, when Popeye is jailed in the unnamed Alabama town for murder, this group of men - referred to as "they" but presumably some combination of local policemen and the jailers - talk about how he'll send for his lawyer (310). It is also "they" who take Popeye to the place of his execution, and "adjust the rope" around his neck, "breaking his hair loose" (315).
