Book 10 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.

In this chapter, the chambermaid to the young lady makes many demands of our heroic innkeeper. She won't eat mutton, because she's not a horse (she clearly has some amazing ideas about animal diets), won't eat in a kitchen with post-boys in them, and generally acts above her station. Her demeanor changes rather suddenly, however, when she hears that Tom Jones is in the inn.
