The Count isn't too thrilled about it - after all, it's only one watermelon, and his aunt usually sends him more things to count. Mr. Handford assumes she sent it to him so he could count how many pounds it weighs. He retrieves his scale, and finds that the watermelon weighs 10 pounds. The Count then discovers something else to count: how many times he falls over when Mr. Handford hands him the watermelon.
