Little Chuck came to the rescue of Miss. Caroline and his classmates.

Little Chuck Little got to his feet. “Let him go, ma’am,” he said. “He’s a mean one, a hard-down mean one. He’s liable to start somethin‘, and there’s some little folks here.”

He was among the most diminutive of men, but when Burris Ewell turned toward him, Little Chuck’s right hand went to his pocket. “Watch your step, Burris,” hesaid. “I’d soon’s kill you as look at you. Now go home.”
