Book 8 Chapter 13 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.

Chapter 3 of the Old Man of the Mountain's story. He rescues a man from a group of bandits, and discovers that the man he's rescued is his own father, who had come to town searching for him. He decides to leave the world of gambling in order to commit himself to the improvement of his mind through the study of philosophy. But what he really recommends is the study of religion, in order to improve one's soul.
