Titre original : The Dawn at Mount Rodney
Frightened for Susy's survival, Candy and Sam race into town to beg for the doctor's help. Too afraid for his own safety to go himself, the doctor gives Candy instructions on how to treat Susy's measles. When Susy is on the mend, Mr. Carson thinks it is solely due to Candy's hard work. He is still out on his mortal vendetta against the doctor. Both Mr. Carson's sons and Candy explain how they owe their knowledge to the doctor. The vendetta quelled, the doctor can see Susy for himself and congratulates Candy's aptitude as a nurse. The children grow fond of Candy, while she continues to care for Susy. But Mr. Carson knows Candy will leave and tells her not to delay her departure, unless she wants to hurt the children more than is necessary. Seeing the sense in that, Candy prepares to leave and accepts Mr. Carson's letter of introduction to his friend Juskin in Southampton.
