To Kill a Mockingbird Summary -- Chapter 7

Jem does not discuss the incident of that night for the whole week. His silence makes Scout wondering about the night's incident. School starts again and Scout discovers the second year is more horrible than the first year of school. Her only consolation is that she gets to walk home with Jem. It was during one of their lazy afternoon walk that Jem dared to open up about that night's incident. He expected his pants tangled up in the school fence wire when he got back to retrieve his pants that night. The mended pants, neatly folded at the school fence posts, lied there waiting for him to retrieve it. It looks like someone knew he is coming back that night to retrieve his pants.

The next present they get from the knothole is a soap carved in the shape of a boy and a girl that looks like them. They come to receive many presents coming from the oak's knothole such as an old pocket watch that is not working, chewing gums, and a spelling bee medal. The two decide to write a thank you letter to whoever is giving them present. The next day, they are about to put the letter in the hole when they notice that the hole was already closed and cemented. Surprised, they ask Boo's brother, Mr. Nathan Radley, about the cemented knothole. He explains that the tree is sick, which makes him fill the hole with cement. However, their father assures them that the tree is in perfect health.
