Mercy and Kit were teaching in the Dame School, Kit found a new method of teaching by 'Act Out' the story in the Bible. But everything went wrong. Mr. Eleazer Kimberly dropped by and was really angry that he said that the school would be temporarily closed and Kit couldn't teach anymore.
Kit was very upset and ran away from the Wood's house and went to the Great Meadow. Kit met Hannah Tupper there, she also invited Kit to her house. Since then, they became friends
Kit and Judith went back from the onion's field. Mercy welcomed them with excitement, because Dr. Bulkeley had recommended Kit to be a teacher in the Dame School (He knew that Kit could read and write from John Hoolbrok)
