  • Reverend/Doctor Bulkely and John Holbrook come over for dinner, and tension builds as the men discuss politics. After they leave, Kit finds out that William Ashby, a man from the church service wants to call on her, triggering Judith to pursue John Holbrook. When William calls on Kit, it is awkward. However, when they join the family, the awkwardness lessens. Hoping she will not have to see him again, Kit is told by the cousins that he is invited over every Saturday.
  • Pleasure to meet you!
  • On the way to weed the onion field, Kit asks Judith about a shack by Blackbird Pond. Judith explains that Hannah Tupper loves there, whom people think is a witch. When the two return home, Kit is asked to teach the town’s youth in the summer along with Mercy. When teaching, Kit’s teaching methods are not very traditional. The headmaster then dismisses her from the job. Kit runs into the field and falls to the ground in tears. She then notices Hannah Tupper, the so called witch, is there to help her. Kit befriends the old woman and finds her company comforting.
