Title The Bishop's Watermelon Patch
Description rising in pitch. Just then the door opened. It was the Bishop hiraself I Andrew jumped back several feet and his heart leaped up to his throat. "What can I do for you boys?" he asked fron behind his heavy red "beard. The boys were invited in and Chris began. "We've come because, ah, well ah..." He twisted his shirt in his hands. -Yes, what is it boys?" The Bishop looked solemn. Chris tried again. "Well, you see, ah...- Andrew could stand it no longer. "We didn't know it was your patch, Bishop," ne blurted out. "No, we didn't,11 Chris added eagerly. "'(Si, I see. You two have eaten one of my watermelons have you?" Chris hung his head and nodded. Breathlessly, Andrew awaited the response. A big smile instantly covered the Bishop's good sunburned face and he exclaimed, 'God bless you boys!" He generously patted each boy on the back. Andrew thought Chris' eyes would pop. -You've done the right thing. I am sure it was extremely difficult to come here and confess as you have done, but I promise that the Lord will bless you for the effort.- Then he called, "Hannah, go down in the cellar aM get these boys some melons." Andrea felt like a hero all the way home as he and Chris carried a watermelon under each arm. He began to whistle. What a fine Ma we have, he thought. And what a Bishop!
