Atticuses Trial

Today Atticus was telling me about his up coming case he has with a black man named Tom Robinson. I asked Atticus if we were going to win the case but he always said no. I never really completely understood why he kept telling me this. I asked Atticus why he even was going to do it if he thought he wasn't going to win but Atticus just said that if it was worth doing that it was worth doing the right way no matter what anyone said. I never really understood why people said Atticus was doing the worg thing.

Miss Maudie

Last night Atticus woke me up in the middle of the night because there was a fire at Miss Maudies house. Atticus got us to put our shoes on and stand out side, the snow was making it so cold out side. I couldn't stand to watch as me and Jem were standing away from the house near the Radely house. Everyone was outside helping trying to stop the fire from spreading and some of the men were trying to save her furniture. Jem kept telling me that it wasn't time to worry but I was worrying on the inside. When the fire was finally out Atticus had seen a blanket on me he said that Boo Radely must have put it on me, that scared me because the thought of Boo Radely coming up behind me really frightens me.

Jems Pants

Today Jem finaly told me what happened after he went back to get his pants. He has been shacken up about it for a few days now. He'd told me that the pants looked like they where waiting for, the scariest part to him was that they were repaired. I couldn't believe that and now I'm pretty scard because that means someone new we were there and that we would come back. We think its Boo Radely and I can't stand the thought of Boo Radely knowing that we were sneeking around his house who knows what he would do to us.
