Book 3 Chapter 10 of Tom Jones.

This is part of an ongoing project in which I will record and post one chapter per week of Henry Fielding's Tom Jones over the course of four years.

And so, another book comes to an end. Blifil has manipulated Allworthy into submitting Black George to the law, though he stops short of sentencing George's family to starvation.

But Tom might have one more trick up his sleeve in appealing to Squire Western, in the form of Western's daughter.

The book ends on a little joke about how he can't introduce a new character at the end of a book, but he just did!
