Don't take it Jem, this is somebody's hidin' place.
Yes, it is... Listen, let's leave it and wait a couple of days. If it ain't gone then, we'll take it, okay?
ouu, look here Scout. Another item!
okay, you might be right.
I don't think so, Scout.
3 days later...
well, I guess it's mine then..
In this scene, Boo Radley has come out at midnight to leave the kids a ball of gray twine as a way to try and communicate with them.
Wow, I've never seen any these good
In this scene, they were walking past the tree when in its knot-hole rested a ball of gray twine. Scout tells Jem not to take it because it might be Walter Cunningham's hidin' place thus, he agrees.
oh my, I'm so excited
Dear Sir, we appreciate the- no, we appreciate everything which you have put into the tree for us. Yours very truly, Jeremy Atticus Finch. Actually, just Jem Finch
our friendship is ruined...
"On the third day, Jem pocketed it. From then on, they considered everything they found in the knot-hole their property."
Jem and Scout "were trotting in their orbit one mild October afternoon when their knot-hole stopped them again." "There were two small images carved in soap. One was the figure of a boy, the other wore a crude dress." Then Jem realizes that they were meant to represent them.
Wait, Scout these are us...
Here, Jem and Scout decided to write a letter to whoever is leaving them these things as a thank you. Jem then re-reads it out loud to Scout.
The next morning, as Jem and Scout were on their way to leave their letter in the knot-hole they see Mr. Radley in the distant. As they approach him, they see that he is cementing the knot-hole which breaks Jem down into tears. He felt as if that sort of communication he had with Boo Radley was lost.
