Book 14 Chapter 3 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 received a visit from Mrs. Miller, who tells him that she wants him out of her house, that having multiple women visit him at all hours of the night will ruin the reputations of her daughters, and that even though he's a relation of Squire Allworthy, she can't abide his behaviour. Tom immediately suspects that Patridge has let slip that Tom was Allworthy's ward.
