Ratliff brings this "fellow" into The Hamlet in his account of how Ab Snopes burned De Spain's barn: according to this account, he bases his description of the rapid "gait" at which De Spain rode his horse from the barn to the cabin where Ab was living on this "fellow who heard him passing in the road" (19). Throughout his account of Ab and De Spain (essentially a re-telling of the short story "Barn Burning"), Ratliff describes events he did not witness firsthand, but this is the only point at which he explains how he 'knew' what happened.
