A "healthy pig-tailed girl of twelve." She is teased by Howard, who tells her she and her family were all worms or blobs of jelly once. She and her mother sell lemonade as the town prepares for Brady's arrival. She gives the organ grinder's monkey a penny, leading Hornbeck to call it the "father of the human race. She mistakes Drummond, upon his entrance in the play at the end of the first scene, for the devil. After watching the trial, she isn't sure who won.
