The Other Side of the Wall

By Mary E. Ropes
Level 11

“All I said, Monsieur,” I answered, “was that maybe the good God, if I trusted in Him, would make a way of escape for me. And if He did make it, Monsieur Valdac, and put it before me, I should most certainly avail myself of it. It is but fair to tell you this.” Jersey Jack is a sailor who has a strong sense of adventure and honesty. When entrusted with the delivery of a critical letter, he risks his safety and his freedom to follow through on his promise. Though the actions of an immoral man lead to the threat of permanent imprisonment, Jack will neither lie to the jailer nor disclose what his employer bade him keep secret.
