As the Bundrens enter Jefferson from the south in As I Lay Dying, they pass "negro cabins" along the road (229). As the wagon passes a group of "three negroes" walking on the road, they react with "that expression of shock and instinctive outrage" that has accompanied the Bundrens along their route (229). When one of the men in this group exclaims "Great God . . . what they got in that wagon?" Jewel is incensed (229).
