Book 9 Chapter 4 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 week's chapter finally gives the mystery woman whom Tom has rescued a name: Mrs. Waters. A sergeant arrives at the inn with his men and recognizes her as such. The innkeepers profusely apologize to her and Tom. Mrs. Waters returns to her room after upbraiding the landlady, and everyone has a toast of reconciliation, but Tom leaves early to eat dinner with Mrs. Walters in her room.
