Chapter 13

      “Put my bag in the front bedroom, Calpurnia,” was the first thing Aunt Alexandra said.

  “Jean Louise, stop scratching your head,” was the second thing she said.

  Calpurnia picked up Aunty’s heavy suitcase and opened the door. “I’ll take it,” saidJem, and took it. I heard the suitcase hit the bedroom floor with a thump1. The sound hada dull permanence about it. “Have you come for a visit, Aunty?” I asked. AuntAlexandra’s visits from the Landing were rare, and she traveled in state. She owned abright green square Buick and a black chauffeur2, both kept in an unhealthy state oftidiness, but today they were nowhere to be seen.

  “Didn’t your father tell you?” she asked.

  Jem and I shook our heads.

  “Probably he forgot. He’s not in yet, is he?”

  “Nome, he doesn’t usually get back till late afternoon,” said Jem.

  “Well, your father and I decided3 it was time I came to stay with you for a while.”

  “For a while” in Maycomb meant anything from three days to thirty years. Jem and Iexchanged glances.

  “Jem’s growing up now and you are too,” she said to me. “We decided that it would bebest for you to have some feminine influence. It won’t be many years, Jean Louise,before you become interested in clothes and boys—”

  I could have made several answers to this: Cal’s a girl, it would be many years beforeI would be interested in boys, I would never be interested in clothes… but I kept quiet.

  “What about Uncle Jimmy?” asked Jem. “Is he comin‘, too?”

  “Oh no, he’s staying at the Landing. He’ll keep the place going.”

  The moment I said, “Won’t you miss him?” I realized that this was not a tactfulquestion. Uncle Jimmy present or Uncle Jimmy absent made not much difference, henever said anything. Aunt Alexandra ignored my question.

  I could think of nothing else to say to her. In fact I could never think of anything to sayto her, and I sat thinking of past painful conversations between us: How are you, JeanLouise? Fine, thank you ma’am, how are you? Very well, thank you, what have youbeen doing with yourself? Nothin‘. Don’t you do anything? Nome. Certainly you havefriends? Yessum. Well what do you all do? Nothin’.

  It was plain that Aunty thought me dull in the extreme, because I once heard her tellAtticus that I was sluggish5.

  There was a story behind all this, but I had no desire to extract it from her then. Todaywas Sunday, and Aunt Alexandra was positively6 irritable7 on the Lord’s Day. I guess itwas her Sunday corset. She was not fat, but solid, and she chose protective garmentsthat drew up her bosom8 to giddy heights, pinched in her waist, flared9 out her rear, andmanaged to suggest that Aunt Alexandra’s was once an hour-glass figure. From anyangle, it was formidable.

  The remainder of the afternoon went by in the gentle gloom that descends10 whenrelatives appear, but was dispelled11 when we heard a car turn in the driveway. It wasAtticus, home from Montgomery. Jem, forgetting his dignity, ran with me to meet him.

  Jem seized his briefcase12 and bag, I jumped into his arms, felt his vague dry kiss andsaid, “‘d you bring me a book? ’d you know Aunty’s here?”

  Atticus answered both questions in the affirmative. “How’d you like for her to come livewith us?”

  I said I would like it very much, which was a lie, but one must lie under certaincircumstances and at all times when one can’t do anything about them.

  “We felt it was time you children needed—well, it’s like this, Scout,” Atticus said. “Youraunt’s doing me a favor as well as you all. I can’t stay here all day with you, and thesummer’s going to be a hot one.”

  “Yes sir,” I said, not understanding a word he said. I had an idea, however, that AuntAlexandra’s appearance on the scene was not so much Atticus’s doing as hers. Auntyhad a way of declaring What Is Best For The Family, and I suppose her coming to livewith us was in that category.

  Maycomb welcomed her. Miss Maudie Atkinson baked a Lane cake so loaded withshinny it made me tight; Miss Stephanie Crawford had long visits with Aunt Alexandra,consisting mostly of Miss Stephanie shaking her head and saying, “Uh, uh, uh.” MissRachel next door had Aunty over for coffee in the afternoons, and Mr. Nathan Radleywent so far as to come up in the front yard and say he was glad to see her.

  When she settled in with us and life resumed its daily pace, Aunt Alexandra seemedas if she had always lived with us. Her Missionary14 Society refreshments15 added to herreputation as a hostess (she did not permit Calpurnia to make the delicacies16 required tosustain the Society through long reports on Rice Christians); she joined and becameSecretary of the Maycomb Amanuensis Club. To all parties present and participating inthe life of the county, Aunt Alexandra was one of the last of her kind: she had river-boat,boarding-school manners; let any moral come along and she would uphold it; she wasborn in the objective case; she was an incurable17 gossip. When Aunt Alexandra went toschool, self-doubt could not be found in any textbook, so she knew not its meaning. Shewas never bored, and given the slightest chance she would exercise her royalprerogative: she would arrange, advise, caution, and warn.

  She never let a chance escape her to point out the shortcomings of other tribal18 groupsto the greater glory of our own, a habit that amused Jem rather than annoyed him:

  “Aunty better watch how she talks—scratch most folks in Maycomb and they’re kin4 tous.”

  Aunt Alexandra, in underlining the moral of young Sam Merriweather’s suicide, said itwas caused by a morbid19 streak20 in the family. Let a sixteen-year-old girl giggle21 in thechoir and Aunty would say, “It just goes to show you, all the Penfield women are flighty.”

  Everybody in Maycomb, it seemed, had a Streak: a Drinking Streak, a Gambling22 Streak,a Mean Streak, a Funny Streak.

  Once, when Aunty assured us that Miss Stephanie Crawford’s tendency to mind otherpeople’s business was hereditary23, Atticus said, “Sister, when you stop to think about it,our generation’s practically the first in the Finch24 family not to marry its cousins. Wouldyou say the Finches have an Incestuous Streak?”

  Aunty said no, that’s where we got our small hands and feet.

  I never understood her preoccupation with heredity. Somewhere, I had received theimpression that Fine Folks were people who did the best they could with the sense theyhad, but Aunt Alexandra was of the opinion, obliquely25 expressed, that the longer afamily had been squatting26 on one patch of land the finer it was.

  “That makes the Ewells fine folks, then,” said Jem. The tribe of which Burris Ewell andhis brethren consisted had lived on the same plot of earth behind the Maycomb dump,and had thrived on county welfare money for three generations.

  Aunt Alexandra’s theory had something behind it, though. Maycomb was an ancienttown. It was twenty miles east of Finch’s Landing, awkwardly inland for such an oldtown. But Maycomb would have been closer to the river had it not been for the nimble-wittedness of one Sinkfield, who in the dawn of history operated an inn where two pig-trails met, the only tavern27 in the territory. Sinkfield, no patriot28, served and suppliedammunition to Indians and settlers alike, neither knowing or caring whether he was apart of the Alabama Territory or the Creek29 Nation so long as business was good.

  Business was excellent when Governor William Wyatt Bibb, with a view to promoting thenewly created county’s domestic tranquility, dispatched a team of surveyors to locate itsexact center and there establish its seat of government. The surveyors, Sinkfield’sguests, told their host that he was in the territorial30 confines of Maycomb County, andshowed him the probable spot where the county seat would be built. Had not Sinkfieldmade a bold stroke to preserve his holdings, Maycomb would have sat in the middle ofWinston Swamp, a place totally devoid31 of interest. Instead, Maycomb grew andsprawled out from its hub, Sinkfield’s Tavern, because Sinkfield reduced his guests tomyopic drunkenness one evening, induced them to bring forward their maps and charts,lop off a little here, add a bit there, and adjust the center of the county to meet hisrequirements. He sent them packing next day armed with their charts and five quarts ofshinny in their saddlebags—two apiece and one for the Governor.

  Because its primary reason for existence was government, Maycomb was spared thegrubbiness that distinguished32 most Alabama towns its size. In the beginning its buildingswere solid, its courthouse proud, its streets graciously wide. Maycomb’s proportion ofprofessional people ran high: one went there to have his teeth pulled, his wagon33 fixed,his heart listened to, his money deposited, his soul saved, his mules34 vetted35. But theultimate wisdom of Sinkfield’s maneuver36 is open to question. He placed the young towntoo far away from the only kind of public transportation in those days—river-boat—and ittook a man from the north end of the county two days to travel to Maycomb for store-bought goods. As a result the town remained the same size for a hundred years, anisland in a patchwork37 sea of cottonfields and timberland.

  Although Maycomb was ignored during the War Between the States, Reconstructionrule and economic ruin forced the town to grow. It grew inward. New people so rarelysettled there, the same families married the same families until the members of thecommunity looked faintly alike. Occasionally someone would return from Montgomery orMobile with an outsider, but the result caused only a ripple38 in the quiet stream of familyresemblance. Things were more or less the same during my early years.

  There was indeed a caste system in Maycomb, but to my mind it worked this way: theolder citizens, the present generation of people who had lived side by side for years andyears, were utterly39 predictable to one another: they took for granted attitudes, charactershadings, even gestures, as having been repeated in each generation and refined bytime. Thus the dicta No Crawford Minds His Own Business, Every Third Merriweather IsMorbid, The Truth Is Not in the Delafields, All the Bufords Walk Like That, were simplyguides to daily living: never take a check from a Delafield without a discreet40 call to thebank; Miss Maudie Atkinson’s shoulder stoops because she was a Buford; if Mrs. GraceMerriweather sips41 gin out of Lydia E. Pinkham bottles it’s nothing unusual—her motherdid the same.

  Aunt Alexandra fitted into the world of Maycomb like a hand into a glove, but neverinto the world of Jem and me. I so often wondered how she could be Atticus’s and UncleJack’s sister that I revived half-remembered tales of changelings and mandrake rootsthat Jem had spun42 long ago.

  These were abstract speculations43 for the first month of her stay, as she had little tosay to Jem or me, and we saw her only at mealtimes and at night before we went tobed. It was summer and we were outdoors. Of course some afternoons when I wouldrun inside for a drink of water, I would find the livingroom overrun with Maycomb ladies,sipping, whispering, fanning, and I would be called: “Jean Louise, come speak to theseladies.”

  When I appeared in the doorway44, Aunty would look as if she regretted her request; Iwas usually mud-splashed or covered with sand.

  “Speak to your Cousin Lily,” she said one afternoon, when she had trapped me in thehall.

  “Who?” I said.

  “Your Cousin Lily Brooke,” said Aunt Alexandra.

  “She our cousin? I didn’t know that.”

  Aunt Alexandra managed to smile in a way that conveyed a gentle apology to CousinLily and firm disapproval45 to me. When Cousin Lily Brooke left I knew I was in for it.

  It was a sad thing that my father had neglected to tell me about the Finch Family, or toinstall any pride into his children. She summoned Jem, who sat warily46 on the sofabeside me. She left the room and returned with a purple-covered book on whichMeditations of Joshua S. St. Clair was stamped in gold.

  “Your cousin wrote this,” said Aunt Alexandra. “He was a beautiful character.”

  Jem examined the small volume. “Is this the Cousin Joshua who was locked up for solong?”

  Aunt Alexandra said, “How did you know that?”

  “Why, Atticus said he went round the bend at the University. Said he tried to shoot thepresident. Said Cousin Joshua said he wasn’t anything but a sewer-inspector and triedto shoot him with an old flintlock pistol, only it just blew up in his hand. Atticus said itcost the family five hundred dollars to get him out of that one—”

  Aunt Alexandra was standing13 stiff as a stork47. “That’s all,” she said. “We’ll see aboutthis.”

  Before bedtime I was in Jem’s room trying to borrow a book, when Atticus knockedand entered. He sat on the side of Jem’s bed, looked at us soberly, then he grinned.

  “Er—h’rm,” he said. He was beginning to preface some things he said with a throatynoise, and I thought he must at last be getting old, but he looked the same. ”I don’texactly know how to say this,“ he began.

  “Well, just say it,” said Jem. “Have we done something?”

  Our father was actually fidgeting. “No, I just want to explain to you that—your AuntAlexandra asked me… son, you know you’re a Finch, don’t you?”

  “That’s what I’ve been told.” Jem looked out of the corners of his eyes. His voice roseuncontrollably, “Atticus, what’s the matter?”

  Atticus crossed his knees and folded his arms. “I’m trying to tell you the facts of life.”

  Jem’s disgust deepened. “I know all that stuff,” he said.

  Atticus suddenly grew serious. In his lawyer’s voice, without a shade of inflection, hesaid: “Your aunt has asked me to try and impress upon you and Jean Louise that youare not from run-of-the-mill people, that you are the product of several generations’

  gentle breeding—” Atticus paused, watching me locate an elusive48 redbug on my leg.

  “Gentle breeding,” he continued, when I had found and scratched it, “and that youshould try to live up to your name—” Atticus persevered49 in spite of us: “She asked me totell you you must try to behave like the little lady and gentleman that you are. She wantsto talk to you about the family and what it’s meant to Maycomb County through theyears, so you’ll have some idea of who you are, so you might be moved to behaveaccordingly,” he concluded at a gallop50.

  Stunned, Jem and I looked at each other, then at Atticus, whose collar seemed toworry him. We did not speak to him.

  Presently I picked up a comb from Jem’s dresser and ran its teeth along the edge.

  “Stop that noise,” Atticus said.

  His curtness51 stung me. The comb was midway in its journey, and I banged it down.

  For no reason I felt myself beginning to cry, but I could not stop. This was not my father.

  My father never thought these thoughts. My father never spoke52 so. Aunt Alexandra hadput him up to this, somehow. Through my tears I saw Jem standing in a similar pool ofisolation, his head cocked to one side.

  There was nowhere to go, but I turned to go and met Atticus’s vest front. I buried myhead in it and listened to the small internal noises that went on behind the light bluecloth: his watch ticking, the faint crackle of his starched53 shirt, the soft sound of hisbreathing.

  “Your stomach’s growling,” I said.

  “I know it,” he said.

  “You better take some soda54.”

  “I will,” he said.

  “Atticus, is all this behavin‘ an’ stuff gonna make things different? I mean are you—?”

  I felt his hand on the back of my head. “Don’t you worry about anything,” he said. “It’snot time to worry.” When I heard that, I knew he had come back to us. The blood in mylegs began to flow again, and I raised my head. “You really want us to do all that? I can’tremember everything Finches are supposed to do…”

  “I don’t want you to remember it. Forget it.”

  He went to the door and out of the room, shutting the door behind him. He nearlyslammed it, but caught himself at the last minute and closed it softly. As Jem and Istared, the door opened again and Atticus peered around. His eyebrows55 were raised,his glasses had slipped. “Get more like Cousin Joshua every day, don’t I? Do you thinkI’ll end up costing the family five hundred dollars?”

  I know now what he was trying to do, but Atticus was only a man. It takes a woman todo that kind of work.
