1935 January 13


Tom Robinson, a black man, has been convicted for raping a young innocent white girl. Understandably, Maycomb residents recognize they are in great danger, and as such the sheriff has insisted on imprisoning Robinson until his upcoming trial in August. The young innocent white girl’s life will never be the same again and has been destroyed due to the rape. In addition, the girl cannot leave the house due to her distress. The town responded to the incident with rage and a mob of people is ready to confront Tom Robinson at his cell. There is no possibility of Tom Robinson being guiltless.


On the early winter morning of January 10th, a fire broke out at Miss Maudie’s house. Luckily, the fire did not spread to the other houses, and no one got injured except for Mr. Avery, who was saving items from the upstairs when the stairs burned out. Miss Maudie’s neighbors helped move her furniture and some valuables out of her house before the fire burned it down A fire truck arrived at Miss Maudie’s house but unfortunately the hose burst due to the coldness of the weather. The fire was caused by Miss Maudie starting a fire in her kitchen to warm up her house and keep her plants warm. Miss Maudie is not extremely upset about this incident due to the fact that she was already planning to build a smaller house with a bigger garden.
