Mr. Ewell, folks were doing a lot of running that night, but did you run for a doctor?
Do you agree with Heck Tate's description of Mayella's injuries?

Weren't you concerned with Mayella's physical condition?

After a few more questions Atticus dismissed Mr. Ewell.
I was on the porch and he come along. I said come here nigger, and bust the chiffarobe, I gotta nickel for you. He come in the yard. I went in to get him the nickel. I turned around an' fore I knew it he was on me. I fought'n'hollered, but he had me round my neck. He chucked me on the floor'n took advantage of me. Next thing I knew Papa was standing over me hollerin'.

That nigger took advantage of me.
My Paw's never touched a hair o'my head in my life.
I was goin' home as usual an' when I passed the Eweel place Miss Mayella were on the porch. She says for me to come there and help her a minute. I went inside the fence an' looked for some kindlin'. She says I got somethin' for you to do in the house. I went inside, then she shut the door in my face. She ask me to step on a chair an' get a box down. Next thing I know she's grabbed me round the legs. I got down offa chair an' she jumped on me. Then she kissed me. I saw Mr. Ewell in th'window and I ran. If you was a nigger like me you'd run to.
