The moment he was gone, she ran to a closet and got out the ruin of a jacket
which Tom had gone pirating in. Then she stopped, with it in her hand, and said
to herself.

No, I dont dare. Poor boy, I reckon hes lied about it-but its a blessed, blessed
lie, theres such comfort come from it. I hope the Lord-I know the Lord will
forgive him, because it was such good-heartedness in him to tell it. But I dont
want to find out its a lie. I wont look. She put the jacket away, and stood by
musing a minute. Twice she put out her hand to take the garment again, and
twice she refrained. Once more she ventured, and this time she fortified herself
with the thought: Its a good lie-its a good lieI wont let it grieve me. So she
sought the jacket pocket. A moment later she was reading Toms piece of bark
through flowing tears and saying: I could forgive the boy, now, if hed
committed a million sins!
