Book 10 Chapter 8 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.

This chapter takes the story back, and immediately picks up from Book 7 Ch 9, which I'm sure you all remember from February. Anyway, it deals with the immediate fallout of Squire Western discovering that Sophia has run away, rather than be married to Blifil. As with most conversations between Western and his sister, it devolves into an argument.
