One day scout was told by some of her school mates that her father defends people of color and he loved them. She was upset and denied it. Later that evening she asked her father and he confirmed, he defends them and loves everyone.
Tom Robinson was introduced. He is the man Atticus is defending, they were told his family as well as himself were "clean- living folks".
The finch family always spent Christmas Eve with their uncle jack.
When ever they needed medical things done such as a splinter removal, their uncle jack had always done it for them. They were never scared of him because he made them laugh as he preformed the medical treatment.
Francis was introduced. He talked to scout about dill, and how he is an orphan that moves around a lot. They had also talked about the recent events with Atticus finch and how he once again defends colored people.
Atticus and uncle jack were having a discussion about the recent news of defending a colored person, and he said he hoped jem and scout would not go through the hate of the town. Scout had heard their conversation and later figured Atticus wanted for her to hear.
