Tom Robinson was a man of god. Since he was a member of the First Purchase with Calpurnia. He was a hard worker in the cotton fields where he worked for Mr. Link Deas. Tom was also helpful to Mayella when she needed heavy work done such as chopping wood. Atticus, who represented Tom in his trial, said that Tom is an honest, word-working, kind man who just happened to be in the wrong place and at the wrong time. Reverend Sykes said that Tom regularly went to church and well respected person among the congregation. I feel that Tom was a hard-working, kind, respectable person that would do anything wrong. I believe that because I truly think that Tom didn't rape Mayella and that he never would. .
