Marian, the new school teacher has a problem to tell the gang in the choir. A student was in tears at the prospect of her family losing their farm. The place is to be put on auction to cover debts, then the family will be destitute, homeless, and in search of new employment and housing. Ely has a plan that he hopes might stop the auction, but will it really help? First a song, Green Braids.
At the farm, the gang have rolled an organ on the back of a truck, and a mini concert is begun. The choir sings, Camptown Races. Marian sings, Coming Through the Rye. Cliff sings, Where the River Shadow Grows. People are lured away from the auction block, and bidding is affectively stopped.
Little Becky Ingalls, the girl who got Marian’s attention sings a solo, So Pure and Fair. The farm may still be in the possession of the family, but how will that save them from their debtors? Will they be able to make a fresh start with a second chance? Ely gives a speech to convince the crowd to contribute to a fund to help the family get back on their feet. Sol Ingalls is recovering from his illness, and won’t need much more time before he can work again. The choir sings a hymn, When Love Shines In.
Moral of the story: Help your neighbor, and give thanks where thanks belongs.
