Jefferson pretty much is lying flat on his bunk and staring at the ceiling. He is refusing food just saying “It don’t matter.” In Chapter 11 Jefferson starts acting like a pig eating food on the ground. Grant doesn't want to cause Miss Emma and Tante Lou more pain by relating Jefferson's behaviour.
