Here, I've got a hankie some place.

I can't go to school anymore.

You can't?

Papa says he's gonna teach me

out of books and things.

He says it'll be better for me.

- But everybody goes to school.

- I don't. Not anymore.

But if you don't go to school,

then you can't walk home with me,

or go swimming

or play with me or anything.

Maybe I can't ever go anywhere.

Maybe I'll just have to stay home

like Mama does all the time.


Cassie, wait a minute!


Whoa there!

Well, for Pete's sake! Look who's here.

- Parris!

- Hello, Drake.

Where you been keeping yourself?

This is the fella I was telling you about.

Meet the Ross girls,

Jinny and Poppy Ross.

- How do you do? I've heard about you...

- Oh, I'll just bet you have.

Say, how do you like

my new horse and buggy?

Just got my allowance yesterday.

What have you been doing

with yourself, anyway?

I've been pretty busy, Drake. College...

He's studying to be a doctor.

He's smart as a whip.

Hey, climb in the buggy

and forget your studies.

We're going out for a ride in the country.

Sit Jinny on your lap or I'll give you Poppy

if you like them plump. I do!

- Some other time, Drake...

- Well, there's no time like right now.

Why, I can't go this afternoon.

I'm on my way to see, well, Dr. Tower.

- Cassie's old man? What for?

- I'm gonna read medicine with him.

Say, I didn't know anybody

ever got to see the Towers.

- How long has this been going on?

- Oh, it hasn't.

This is the first time I've been there.

- Cassie Tower? Ain't she the one...

- Sure, she is.

Her old man keeps her under lock and key

like he thought every fellow in town

was aiming to kidnap her.

I guess they'd like to at that.

Say, I haven't seen Cassie

since we were kids together in school.

- Have you?
