The boy trying to steal money from Mrs. Jones's purse
"It was about eleven o'clock at night, and she was walking alone, when a boy ran up behind her and tried to snatch her purse."
The settings supports the theme because Mrs. Jones is bringing the boy back to her house to teach him a lesson and to give him a second chance.
A boy who tried to steal money from a lady's purse. The boy got caught and the lady taught the boy a lesson and gave him a second chance. Second chances revield the theme the best because the boy got the second chance and made the best of it.
Mrs. Jones did bad things too, but she got a second chance and changed life for the better.
If the boy hadn't tried to steal the purse then he wouldn't of gotten a second chance and then there wouldn't be a theme.
