Ever Present in Yoknapatawpha?: 

In his hypothetical account of Flem's trip back to Frenchman's Bend in The Town, Gavin mentions why he could not ride with the "mail carrier," who takes passengers there "for a dollar" (305). Like other rural areas, Yoknapatawpha's Rural Free Delivery network employed multiple mailmen; this "carrier" is probably not the same person as the mail "rider" to delivers the mail to Whiteleaf and also charges a dollar for other services (176).
