The principle, Mr. Jenkins, tries to encourage Meg to do better in school, but after Meg is smug with him as well, he says coldly that her father is never coming home. Meg is sure that the postmistress, who saw her father's last letter a year ago, has spread news of his disappearance throughout the town.
