In Chapter 2, Scout recalls a time when Mr. Cunningham was one of Atticus' clients. Atticus was representing him and it had to do with an entailment. Mr. Cunningham says, "Mr. Finch, I don’t know when I’ll ever be able to pay you." Atticus replies that he shouldn't worry about it and tells Scout that he will be paid, but "not in money." Later, Mr. Cunningham repaid Atticus with wood, hickory nuts, smilax and honey, and turnip greens. 

In Chapter 15, Atticus is guarding the jail, which holds Tom Robinson. Mr. Cunningham and a mob of others approach the jail. Scout tries to intervene, talking about Walter Jr. and entailments; she succeeds in getting the mob to go home. Mr. Cunningham says to Scout that he will tell Walter Jr. she says hello. 

Mr. Cunningham then tells the mob to go home. “Let’s clear out,” he called. 

Lastly, he says, “Let’s get going, boys.”
