2 October 2015 | by RedRainbowUnicorn23See all my reviews

This episode introduce yet another new character The new banker Ebenezer Sprague. When we meet him him comes upon as stuck up and mean He doesn't even want to make a donation to buy school books. He snipped at everyone Including:Charles,Caroline,Harie t and even poor little luara. Well at first she didn't know it was the banker until later. This another episode where Laura fix and makes a mean/troubled person hart soften like just she can!! This is a pretty good episode and it has a good lesson. Never judge a book by its cover!!! Memrobile scene:mr sprague Telling Laura this story on their way back home and Laura's mouth just hangs open and says:"oh my goodness"

Continue to the next half of season 2 Little house on the prairie!!

Enjoy!
