It can happen twice...

This is another precious story of Isaiah and his adopted children. When he takes Dr. Baker to a nearby town that's suffering from Mountain Fever, he unknowingly picks up the fever (or does he merely bring back an infected tick?) from the place. It's revealed in this episode that Mr. Edwards had lost his first wife and daughter to this very same sickness.

The quarantine eventually gets to the Ingalls children. Laura and Carrie are especially at each others' throat. Now that Mary is engaged, I'm guessing she can no longer scrabble with her sister. Charles tells them that after eight days of separation, it's time they get back to life. Unfortunately, the discover that Alisha is indeed sick with the horrible fever.

Laura plays her regular role in getting into trouble, but then putting her family's well-being above everything else. After getting spots, she goes to Mr. Edwards' cabin thinking she's about to die - or hoping? Because at supper the night before Charles told her that one in every two people die - that meant it was either her or Alisha.

I always thought it was odd that nobody caught on to the truth. Laura wasn't even sick. She had no fever. Yet everyone just assumed she had the disease. I would think that Isiah would have figured it out...

Well anyway, it turned out okay...
