Chapter 7: The water is frozen, so none of the girls are able to wash up. Miss Scatcherd targets Helen and makes her do chores because she is unclean. When Jane questions Helen about her punishments, Helen tells her that Miss Scatcherd is punishing her because she wants her to be better, and to become more holy. Jane doesn't understand this. Helen tells Jane that she should not be vengeful, and should treat enemies just as she would treat those she loves, even Mrs. Reed.
