  • Mayella was on the porch at dusk, and she asked Tom to come into the yard to bread an old wardrobe into firewood. Said she’d never asked Tom for help before.
  • She went inside to get a nickel to pay him, and when she turned around he was there.
  • She stated Tom got her around the neck, she fought, but he hit her repeatedly.
  • He threw her on the floor and took advantage of her.
  • She screamed and kick, and the next thing she knew her father was there. She fainted, and then Heck was there to help her up.
  • We learn that she is the oldest of 8 children. Her mother died. She now looks after the household. Her father is a drunkard, the children rarely have enough food, and Mayella hasn’t any friends.
  • She changes her story about how Tom hit her. First she can’t remember, then she can.

Tom Robinson—Fourth WitnessThe Accused
  • Tom is 25, married, with three children. He works year round for Link Deas.
  • He once received 30 days in prison for disorderly conduct.
  • He said he was well acquainted with Mayella. He passed her house daily.
  • He stated he’d been on the Ewell property lots of times to help out. He felt sorry for her.
  • On 11.21 Mayella asked him to come into the house to fix a broken hinge. When Tom inspected it, the door seemed fine.
  • The house was too quiet. Mayella told him she’d saved for a year to send all of the children to town for ice cream.
  • Mayella asked Tom to get a box down off a chiffarobe for her. Then, she hugged him around the waist.
  • Startled, Tom jumped down and knocked over the chair. Mayella jumped on him, and kissed the side of his face. He asked her to let him go repeatedly.
  • Bob Ewell appeared at the window during the encounter. He screamed at Mayella and threatened to kill her.
  • Tom ran because he was afraid.
