Not PD (yet), as it was first published in 1927, Faulkner's second novel. Ninety years old and still under copyright, tsk tsk.

Anyway, if you live in the South as I do, by all means wear long sleeves and pants (and/or anti-bite lotion/spray) this summer, and consecutive summers. I went out this morning to do a little yard-work, sans protection, and almost immediately was descended upon by a horde of vicious bugs. Most likely mosquitoes, but the resultant stings feel more like nettles or wasp-work, on my arms and neck. Calamine, anti-histamine, and cold air are helpful but I'm still itching. Skeeters have become more nasty in Florida since I was a kid; you'd get bit but it didn't last as long as the newer species, which now also carry various tropical diseases we haven't had up here since the American Civil War era.
