Your father is a ni****-lover! He is as good as the trash he fights for!
You have to apologize to Mrs. Dubose right now and accept any punishment that she gives you.
The day after Jem's 12th birthday, Scout and Jem were on their way to the market. As they passed by Mrs. Dubose's house, they greeted her. In return, she replied :
For the next month.....
Mrs. Dubose's words made Jem angry. He decided to take revenge.
Children, Mrs. Dubose is dead. She has left you this box.
Atticus heard about Jem's exploits and made him apologize to Mrs. Dubose and accept any punishment that she gave. Mrs. Dubose's decided to make the children read to her every day for a month as punishment.
Mrs. Dubose was very sick, but you kids made her feel better.
Every day, Jem and Scout went to Dubose's house to read to her.
One day, the children saw Atticus returning from Mrs. Dubose's house. He had a terrible message for the children.
Mrs. Dubose's gift to Jem represents how grateful she is for Jem's company.
