Scout wanted to find out if Boo had been responsible for Mrs. Radley's death. Atticus tells her nothing.

“Ask him,” Jem whispered.

“You ask him, you’re the oldest.”

“That’s why you oughta ask him.”

“Atticus,” I said, “did you see Mr. Arthur?”

Atticus looked sternly around his newspaper at me: “I did not.”
