The children of Walnut Grove pull their money to buy Reverend Alden a new Bible, and entrust Mary with the cash. However, Mary and Laura decide to invest their money in medicines that, upon their sale, could easily double their money and thus allow them to buy one really great gift for their beloved minister. After much scheming to follow through with their project, they realize that miracle medicines are really not truly needed, and they must tell the truth to the sympathetic Reverend.



  • As Laura and Mary are walking down away from the lake to pick berries, you can see they are wearing different clothes than when they were talking to Pa just seconds earlier.?
