Book 15 Chapter 7 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, Mrs. Honour comes to Tom's room to tell him that Squire Western has arrived and taken Sophia away to marry Blifil. While she's there, Lady Bellaston arrives, in an amorous mood, while Honour hides under the bed. The ensuing situation is pure farce.
