The Enchanted Cottage

Farmer Judd Larabee objects to setting a standard price for wheat, particularly since black farmers would pay the same rate as white farmers, and despite agreeing to stick together he privately makes a deal that would benefit him at the expense of the other farmers. Jonathan Garvey has enough of Larabee's backstabbing and racism, and confronts him in front of his family. Tensions escalate when a vengeful Larabee pays a visit to the Garveys and assaults Andy, who is the only one home. Then, Garvey's barn burns down and Larabee is fingered as the suspect.
