Eliza Jane fibs and says that she is getting married to Harve Miller who had come to help Almanzo take care of their property while Almanzo was working on the new land. She says this so that Laura will take over the Walnut Grove school and she won't have to go away to teach. Since she is leaving, that leaves the house for Almanzo and Laura. They decide to get married on Adam and Mary's anniversary so that the men can help each other remember when it is! When Charles goes to get the priest he sees Harve Miller in town and asks if he wants to surprise Eliza Jane and have a double wedding, but Harve tells him that he got married to someone last Sunday and Eliza Jane knew it. Charles doesn't spoil the news. Written by
