Description: 

It is on the "deserted gallery" - that is, the front porch - of "Varner’s store in Frenchman’s Bend Village" that Isham Quick explains Stonewall Jackson Fentry’s relationship to the Buck Thorpe and Stevens finally understands why Fentry refused to declare Bookwright innocent of Thorpe's murder (102). This scene takes place at sundown, which explains why no one else is at the store. During the day that gallery is where the men of Frenchman's Bend frequently gather, as the story makes clear later, when Quick describes the times Buck Thorpe, drunk and violent, talked there with "about a half dozen" other men (109).
