Heart of Truth
While Lee is away in Union City, Jesse manages to talk himself into an office job at the lumber mill. When Lee discovers Jesse’s ruse, he assigns him to work on a logging crew to teach him about working his way from the bottom to the top. Thankful for the opportunity, Jesse eagerly takes the job.
Bill catches Robert making an attempt to run away from home. Robert admits that he lied and needs to leave town. Bill kindly shares a similar story about a lesson he learned when he told a lie as a child. The moral of the story was that Bill came clean about his lie and cleared his conscience at the same time. He recommends Robert do the same. Robert obliges and tells Elizabeth the truth about making up the story of the bear, and that he is going to return the coin to Opal’s parents.
