Dill described the children to Scout, what they looked like..... the little girl's pigtails, the game of marbles the children were playing when they arrived. He also talked about how Helen Robinson collapsed into the dirt upon hearing of her husband's death.... how Atticus and Calpurnia helped her up and into the house. Dill noted that Atticus spent a long time in the house, and that he came out of the house alone. His last comment was to inform Scout that the Ewell children had yelled at the car when they passed...... but that he hadn't heard what they said.
