Tom Jones, Book XII, Chapter 4, by Henry Fielding
Read by Mark Turetsky
Book 12 Chapter 4 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 is, at long last, reunited with Sophia…’s pocketbook. It turns out, a disabled beggar found it after she dropped it, and coincidentally, he tries to sell it to Tom. Tom then not only finds Sophia’s name written on it, but also the 100 pound bank note that her father had given to her that she had lost a few chapters back.
