Book 13 Chapter 12 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, Lady Bellaston needles Sophia with the knowledge the she knows Sophia was meeting with Jones, but Sophia doesn't know that she is familiar with Jones. She reminds Sophia that she has made a vow never to marry without her father's consent, which implies that she is not to see Jones.
