The manse children took Mary Vance to church with them the next day. At first Mary objected to the idea.
“Didn’t you go to church over-harbour?” asked Una.
“You bet. Mrs. Wiley never troubled church much, but I went every Sunday I could get off. I was mighty thankful to go to some place where I could sit down for a spell. But I can’t go to church in this old ragged dress.”
This difficulty was removed by Faith offering the loan of her second best dress.
“It’s faded a little and two of the buttons are off, but I guess it’ll do.”
