The Color Purple Letter Thirty-Nine Summary

  • Everybody discusses doing something for Sofia, to bust her out of prison.
  • Harpo thinks they should just use some dynamite.
  • Celie silently hopes for a miracle and thinks of God. Celie thinks death is a better option than staying in that horrible jail.
  • It turns out that the white warden, who’s last name is Hodges, is Squeak’s uncle, though it’s not clear if he’ll recognize the family connection. They decide she should go see him to see if something can be done for Sofia.
