In Chapter Four, when Johnny arrives at Mr. Lyte’s the servants tease him because they think he is there to propose to Lavinia. When he finally meets Mr. Lyte, the rich merchant cruelly laughs at Johnny, insults his mother, and tries to send him away. However, Johnny carefully describes the cup that his mother left him to prove that he is related to the Lytes. Mr. Lyte and his servant, Sewall, both recognize the cup from Johnny’s description. Mr. Lyte tells Johnny he can come back at suppertime and that he should bring the cup.
