The Color Purple Letter Fifty-One Summary

  • Celie finds Nettie’s letters locked in Mr.__’s trunk (along with some of Shug’s underwear and some "nasty" pictures).
  • Celie and Shug take the letters out of the envelopes and then put the envelopes back in the trunk so Albert will never know that they’re missing. They put the letters in order so that Celie can read them from the beginning.
