When he returns home, Mrs. Lapham accuses him of stealing his new shoes. However, Cilla and Isannah graciously accept their gifts. But when they are hugging and playing with the limes, Isannah catches a glimpse of Johnny’s deformed hand and screams in fright. Although Cilla scolds Isannah and slaps her, Johnny is heartbroken. He runs away and sleeps in the Copp’s Hill graveyard. He sees his mother’s grave and decides he is now desperate enough to ask for help from Merchant Lyte.
