The prosecutor, Mr. Gilmer was asking the cop Heck Tate questions who recounts how on the night of November 21, Bob Ewell urged him to go to the Ewell house and told him that his daughter Mayella had been raped. When Tate got there he found Mayella bruised and beaten, and she told him that Tom Robinson had raped her. Atticus cross-examines the witness, who admits that no doctor was summoned, and tells Atticus that Mayella’s bruises were concentrated on the right side of her face. Tate leaves the stand and Bob Ewell is called.
The vast crowd camps in the town square to eat lunch. Afterward Jem Scout and Dill wait for most of the crowd to enter the courthouse so that they can slip in at the back and in this way prevent Atticus from noticing them. Because they wait too long they succeed in getting seats only when Reverend Sykes lets them sit in the balcony where black people are required to sit in order to watch the trial. From these seats they can see the whole courtroom. Judge Taylor, a white-haired old man with a reputation for running his court in an informal fashion, presides over the case.
The trial begins the next day. People from all over the county flood the town. Everyone makes an appearance in the courtroom, from Miss Stephanie Crawford to Mr. Dolphus Raymond, a wealthy strange who owns land on a river bank, lives near the county line, is involved with a black woman, and has child from one black parent and one white parent. Only Miss Maudie refuses to go, saying that watching someone on trial for his life is like attending a Roman carnival.
