Inheritance: Part 2


"So he asked Mr. Nolander to see if maybe he could trade off some of his niggers for that piano."

"He be talking about taking it out of Shutter's house. Say it was the story of our whole family and as long as Sutter had it... He had us."

"Now, that's how all that got started and that why we say Berniece ain't gonna sell that piano. Cause her daddy died over it."

All of the quotes talking about the piano and the family's history are all related to the piano.

Conflict: the family's discussing about to sell the piano or not, because the histories are all recorded on that piano.

In my opinion, the family shouldn't sell that piano because the dad died over it in order to bring back the piano to the family, and the piano is carved with the family's history.
