Chapter 25

Dill and Jem met Atticus and Calpurnia who drove by. They were on their way to tell Mrs. Robinson that her husband, Tom, had been shot and killed while he was trying to escape from prison. Dill and Jem were told they could come along with them if they stayed in the car.

Atticus went to the Robinson’s front door and asked a boy where his mother was. He said he would go get her. When Atticus told Mrs. Robinson the news, she fainted. Calpurnia and Atticus carried her inside the house. She was shocked and very sad about her husband dying. When Mr. Ewell heard about Tom Robinson being killed he said, “It made one down and about two more to go”. Mr. Ewell was just trying to scare Atticus and his children.
