Mrs. Weaver, Jo, Prester Kell, and Picket Longtreader all accompany Emma to visit Missy Dreft in her home in Old Town, as Emma desires to inquire about True Blue.

Dreft, on her deathbed, recounts the tale of the Firstflower to them all, informing them of its discovery by Flint and Fay on the Blue Moss Hills and of its remarkable healing properties and ability to give the consumer long life. After accounting these details, she dies silently, and is left with Prester Kell.
