Katy, Jacob, and father are all here. Katy learns Jacob killed his niece. Father disapproves.
It was like the kittens, wasn't it? You used to take the new kittens down to the creek. Peggy told me. She said you were gentle with them. Did you do that to the baby, Jacob?
Sheep! It was like the sheep, he tried to find a suitable mom since Nellie didn't want her child!
Katy, I have to take the boy in now!
He meant no harm, Father!
The court will decide.
Father! I need to know-
I´m sorry. I was wrong, Jacob. It was like the lamb, wasn't it? Its mother turned away, so you found a better mother who already had a baby of her own so she could feed it. Remember? I saw it in your barn, the day you gave Goldy to me.
Katy, a terrible thing has happened that you do not know about. I must take the boy now!
Father, Don't let them take his cap.
You must come now, Jacob. They're looking for you.
