Book 13 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.
In this chapter, Tom hears the sad story of the relations of Mrs. Miller, who are all sick and dying. Tom, it just so happens, has money to help them out. It's strongly implied that he got the money by becoming a gigolo.
