201. HELLO AND GOODBYE
March 21, 1983
Willie and Rachel are enjoying marriage. (wink) Sherwood Montague is a well-educated, well-mannered, well-connected, well-traveled man who comes to Walnut Grove to research a book he is writing. He decides to stay at the Wilder boarding house and disorients the community with his “sophisticated” peculiarities. Matthew Roger’s biological father comes to Walnut Grove. Matthew does not want to hurt Mr. Edwards but eventually decides to give his father a chance and leaves town with him. Not wanting to be alone again, Mr. Edwards moves into the Wilder boarding house.
Comment: Sherwood Montague will be a reoccurring character.
