Johnny Dorset ( also known as Red Chief )
Johnny is a caucasian male with red hair. Johnny was heard to act like he was an Indian, so if you see someone who fits these descriptions and they are walking around attempting to scalp people then it is Johnny. "Red Chief was sitting on Bill's chest, with one hand twined in Bill's hair. In the other hand he had the sharp case knife we used for slicing bacon; and he was industrioly and realistically trying to take Bill's scalp, according to the sentence that had been pronounced upon him the evening before." The neighbors of the Dorset family believe that Johnny is an annoying kid. "You had better come at night, for the neighbors believe he is lost, and I couldn't be responsible for what they would do to anybody they saw bringing him back." this was in a letter that was found between Ebenezer,Bill, and Sam. Clearly, this shows that the neighbors don't want Johnny to come back. Although Johnny is like ringworm, irritating and keeps coming back, he is still a kid and deserves to have a loving place to call home.
