Mr. Lapham says that Johnny should try to find a new trade that he can do even with a deformed hand. Mr. Lapham also asks Johnny to “forgive Dove like a Christian” (47). This is how Johnny finds out that Dove caused the accident. Although Mr. Lapham says that Dove was very repentant and didn’t mean to hurt him. I suppose Johnny had some responsibility for his situation in that he was overbearing and rude to Dove. This frustrates, the not so witty Dove, enough to play the dangerous prank.
