Jem takes his time before he tells his sister that his pants were mended when he went back to get them. By taking his time before telling his sister, he is showing that he is growing up. He is taking time to think about things that happen to him and trying to put them into perspective. Scout notices this change in Jem and says, “It was then, I suppose, that Jem and I first begin to part company.”
he tells her some one had stuched his pants and neatly hung them on the gate. (boo)
he said he met his pants folded back like someone was expecting him
he tells her that when he went back to get his pants from the Duradleys place that they were folded by the gate and the rip in the pants were fixed.
