They are saddened at the loss of their son. However, they discuss how they feel lucky to have two daughters that spend time with them. Their daughters are out visiting some friends of theirs and so they begin to talk about them. Katy spends time with her father working on the fields, while Susan Ellen enjoys housework with her mother. They discuss how Katy may become a teacher while Susan Ellen will certainly find a suitable husband when she comes of age. Mr. Hilton decides that he needs to treat his daughters to a trip to Topham Corners and Mrs. Hilton makes fun of him for taking the girls to a place that he has wanted to visit for some time. The daughters come home and Susan Ellen spends a while discussing the fun party that she just attended. Her teacher threw the party. Katy sits quietly by her father. The next morning the family decides to leave for Topham Corners. They put on their best clothes and travel by carriage. Mrs. Hilton does not accompany them, and John thinks to himself that it is for the best as despite his love for her, the trip will be better with out her. They continue to drive and John tells many stories to his daughters about crops, farming and past lives. Susan Ellen is so excited to get into the city, while Katy enjoys nature and is scared of the new city
