Ten year old Joseph Cartwright has been assigned a project by Miss Jones to write a paper about his mother. The trouble is, he’s not quite sure what he knows so he asks for her help.

  1. Fine foreshadowing of the way Joe hungered after any information about his mother on the show–and I agree that, with all her faults, Abigail Jones was a dedicated teacher! Thank you for sharing this here!

  2. Excellent way of bringing those disparate details together! And what a lovely way to show Abigail Jones as something more than a priggish man-hunter. Well done!

  3. That was very cool. I love the way a true teacher managed to steer a pupil in the right direction. For whatever else she may have been, Abigail was a dedicated teacher and this was lovely. What a great way to pull together the inconsistencies of script writers.

    • I got into a discussion on the Boomers list regarding Marie. There were SO many differences – hair color, her name, etc. – that I thought it would be fun to see if I could sort it out. Thanks for reading and letting me know I managed it!

  4. No wonder the poor child was confused, all those writers who couldn’t remember what happened before. Great plot for your story!
