Book 14 Chapter 9 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, Nightingale's uncle continues to be the most polite person in his family, that is until Nightingale privately confides in him that he hasn't yet married Nancy. At which point, uncle Nightingale shows his true face, and attempts to convince Nightingale that marrying Nancy would be folly, and convinces him to come home with him, so that he can further prevail upon Nightingale to change his mind.
