Chapter Thirteen

1

MISS WEEMS SAYS MR. SAM WITHERSPOON WILL BE coming to pick up Albert, the Boston bull. “Sam will be right for Albert,” she says. “They’re both getting on in years. And Sam’s bound to be lonesome living in that big house all by himself without Martha.”

When Mr. Witherspoon arrives Mary Lou sees the match right away. Mr. Witherspoon plods stiffly along with his head down just like Albert. And they both have round brown eyes that bulge a little.

The three of them stand in the parlor looking down at Albert.

“Albert, you’ll like Mr. Witherspoon,” Miss Weems promises. Albert looks up at Mr. Witherspoon, turns his back on him, and trots out of the room.

Miss Weems says, “He’s a little shy at first, but he’ll be just fine. Now Sam, Miss Barbara’s cousin has already paid the fees. Albert’s had all his shots and, as far as we know, he’s healthy. But he’s mighty lonesome right now.”

Albert sticks his head back around the door. Mr. Witherspoon plods over, stoops, and pats his head. “Well, little feller, you reckon we can get along?”
