One Friday, after playing hooky from school and being caught messing up his clothes in a fight, Tom must face a punishment: he must whitewash the fence on Saturday.

He wins himself a Bible in Sunday school for these treasures, but answers a Bible question incorrectly, and makes a fool of himself in the process.

But the two boys witness a murder in the graveyard; Dr. Robinson is killed by the “Native-American half-breed” Injun Joe. The boys run away from the scene and swear themselves to secrecy. Injun Joe blames Muff Potter, a drunk, for the murder, and Potter is arrested. Tom feels his guilt and anxiety grow.
