The crowd outside the courthouse in "A Point of Law" includes "other tenants" from the McCaslin-Edmonds place (221). When Faulkner included this scene in Go Down, Moses, he revised the description to read "other people" rather than "tenants" (69). In both texts these poor Negroes are contrasted with the powerful white men on the scene.
