When Mrs. Deborah returned into the room…

Their envy did not, however, display itself openly…

'Can any pleasure compensate these evils?'

Jenny now lifted her eyes from the ground…

Book One, Chapter Nine

Book One, Chapter Ten

As sympathies of all kinds are apt to beget love…

To deal plainly with the reader…

The doctor accused Mr. Allworthy of too great lenity…

Book One, Chapter Thirteen

Book Two, Chapter One

Book Two, Chapter Two

Book Two, Chapter Three

Thus it happened to Mrs. Partridge…

Book Two, Chapter Four

Nothing can be so quick and sudden as the operations of the mind…

Book Two, Chapter Five

I have thought it somewhat strange, upon reflection…

Mr. Allworthy answered, 'He could not dispute with the captain…'

Book Two, Chapter Six

Here, reader, I beg your patience a moment…

Whether Partridge repented or not…

Book Two, Chapter Seven

One situation only of the married state…

Book Two, Chapter Eight

Book Two, Chapter Nine

These two doctors, whom, to avoid any malicious applications…

Book Three, Chapter One

Book Three, Chapter Two

To say the truth, some of that atrocious wickedness in Jones…

At his return home, Tom was presently convened before Mr. Allworthy.

Book Three, Chapter Three

Book Three, Chapter Four

Book Three, Chapter Five

When this story became public…

Having, therefore, determined to commit these boys…

Book Three, Chapter Six

Whether Mrs. Blifil had been surfeited…

Book Three, Chapter Seven

Book Three, Chapter Eight

Book Three, Chapter Nine

Book Three, Chapter Ten

Book Four, Chapter One

Book Four, Chapter Two

Her cheeks were of the oval kind…

Book Four, Chapter Three

Book Four, Chapter Four

'And if they had been hanged…'

Book Four, Chapter Five

Sophia, with the highest degree of innocence and modesty…

It was Mr. Western's custom every afternoon…

Book Four, Chapter Six

That the reader may be no longer in suspense…

Book Four, Chapter Seven

Book Four, Chapter Eight

But now Fortune, fearing she had acted out of character…

Book Four, Chapter Nine

Book Four, Chapter Ten

Tom begged to be excused…

Book Four, Chapter Eleven

But whatever detestation Mr. Allworthy had…

Book Four, Chapter Twelve

Book Four, Chapter Thirteen

Book Four, Chapter Fourteen

Perhaps Sophia might have suffered her maid…

Book Five, Chapter One

And here we shall of necessity…

Book Five, Chapter Two

As to Squire Western…

Book Five, Chapter Three

Book Five, Chapter Four

Book Five, Chapter Five

She was proceeding thus…

The reader will be mistaken…

Book Five, Chapter Six

It may, perhaps, be a question…

One day this young couple accidentally met in the garden…

Book Five, Chapter Seven

'Grieve, therefore, no more, my dear child…'

Book Five, Chapter Eight

The physician now arrived…

Book Five, Chapter Nine

The doctor now interposed…

Book Five, Chapter Ten

Here ensued a parley…

Book Five, Chapter Eleven

Jones now finding himself engaged with two…

Book Five, Chapter Twelve

All fears for Sophia being now removed…

Book Six, Chapter One

Book Six, Chapter Two

'Sister,' cries the squire…

Book Six, Chapter Three

Mr. Allworthy was not one of those men…

Book Six, Chapter Four

Book Six, Chapter Five

Mrs. Western now stood a few moments silent…

Book Six, Chapter Six

Book Six, Chapter Seven

Mr. Western took care to way-lay the lover…

Book Six, Chapter Eight

Book Six, Chapter Nine

So trembled poor Sophia…

It may likewise seem surprising…

Book Six, Chapter Ten

When Allworthy and Blifil were again left together…

Book Six, Chapter Eleven

Book Six, Chapter Twelve

He was now searching his pockets for his wax…

Book Six, Chapter Thirteen

'Name not his detested name,' cries Sophia…

Book Six, Chapter Fourteen

Book Seven, Chapter One

But as Nature often exhibits some of her best performances…

Book Seven, Chapter Two

Book Seven, Chapter Three

'Indeed, madam,' replied Sophia…

'Brother,' said Mrs. Western…

Book Seven, Chapter Four

Book Seven, Chapter Five

Book Seven, Chapter Six

Though Mr. Blifil was not of the complexion of Jones…

Book Seven, Chapter Seven

'I would not have your la'ship too confident of that,' cries Honour…

Book Seven, Chapter Eight

In this humour, which was none of the sweetest…

Book Seven, Chapter Nine

Honour acted her part to the utmost perfection.

Book Seven, Chapter Ten

Here the Quaker ended with a deep sigh…

Book Seven, Chapter Eleven

The gentleman who had been all night tippling at the alehouse…

Book Seven, Chapter Twelve

Mr. Adderly, which was the name of the other ensign…

The tenderness of lovers…

Book Seven, Chapter Thirteen

'Well, sir,' said the surgeon…

Book Seven, Chapter Fourteen

As soon as the serjeant was departed…

Perceiving the bird was flown…

Book Seven, Chapter Fifteen

The reader may perhaps expect…

Book Eight, Chapter One

Man therefore is the highest subject…

Thus we may, perhaps, with little danger, relate the history of Fisher…

Our modern authors of comedy…

Book Eight, Chapter Two

'And could I ever have imagined…'

Book Eight, Chapter Three

Book Eight, Chapter Four

'Indeed,' says Jones…

Book Eight, Chapter Five

Little Benjamin, who had been all attention…

Book Eight, Chapter Six

Jones was a little startled at this sudden declaration.

Book Eight, Chapter Seven

In the evening, when Jones retired to his room…

Book Eight, Chapter Eight

Jones had no sooner quitted the room…

Book Eight, Chapter Nine

They now travelled some miles without speaking to each other…

'A popish priest!' cries Jones…

Book Eight, Chapter Ten

'Pray, sir,' says Partridge…

The old woman was distracted…

Book Eight, Chapter Eleven

'It was my misfortune…'

'Timorous thieves, by extreme caution…'

'Perhaps,' cries Partridge…

Book Eight, Chapter Twelve

'This declaration a little relieved my abashment…'

Book Eight, Chapter Thirteen

'Most of those present seemed affected by this scene…'

'I began now to think all the time I had spent…'

'In short, we soon separated…'

Book Eight, Chapter Fourteen

'We were prevented from any further discourse…'

'The unfortunate event of this enterprise…'

Book Eight, Chapter Fifteen

'Thus, sir, I have ended the history of my life…'

'In the former part of what you said,' replied Jones…

Book Nine, Chapter One

To prevent therefore, for the future…

Again, there is another sort of knowledge…

Book Nine, Chapter Two

Jones helped Northerton upon his legs…

Book Nine, Chapter Three

My landlady, though a very good-tempered woman…

Now the dogs of war being let loose, began to lick their bloody lips…

Book Nine, Chapter Four

My landlord was likewise beginning his oration to Jones…

Book Nine, Chapter Five

The contrary happens in that love which operates…

Book Nine, Chapter Six

'Those officers,' says Partridge…

Book Nine, Chapter Seven

After much consultation on this matter…

Book Ten, Chapter One

Book Ten, Chapter Two

Next to the lady's chamber…

Book Ten, Chapter Three

This gentleman then being well tired…

The lady earnestly desired Partridge to return to his seat…

Book Ten, Chapter Four

Book Ten, Chapter Five

To say the truth, this behaviour of Partridge was a little inexcusable…

Book Ten, Chapter Six

The behaviour of Jones on this occasion…

Book Ten, Chapter Seven

So much more tenderly do women value their reputation…

Book Ten, Chapter Eight

The squire himself now sallied forth…

Book Ten, Chapter Nine

Sophia, finding all her persuasions had no effect…

The landlady finding Sophia intended to stay no longer…

Book Eleven, Chapter One

Now, however ludicrous all this may appear to some…

Book Eleven, Chapter Two

The conversation which passed between these ladies…

This polite person, now taking his wife aside…

Book Eleven, Chapter Three

Book Eleven, Chapter Four

'But, what may seem astonishing…'

Book Eleven, Chapter Five

'This seat, then, is an ancient mansion-house…'

Book Eleven, Chapter Six

'What news, pray?' says Sophia, something eagerly.

Book Eleven, Chapter Seven

Thus, then, Mrs. Fitzpatrick resumed her narrative…

'Mr. Fitzpatrick seemed a little thunderstruck with this…'

Book Eleven, Chapter Eight

On this subject, reader, I must stop a moment, to tell thee a story.

Sophia was very soon eased of her causeless fright…

Book Eleven, Chapter Nine

His wife, however, was far from drawing this conclusion…

Book Eleven, Chapter Ten

The case, it seems, was this…

Book Twelve, Chapter One

Book Twelve, Chapter Two

The hounds ran very hard, as it is called…

Book Twelve, Chapter Three

At length, Jones, being weary of soliloquy…

Book Twelve, Chapter Four

The pocket-book was a late present from Mrs. Western to her niece…

Book Twelve, Chapter Five

Before our travellers had finished their dinner…

Book Twelve, Chapter Six

Book Twelve, Chapter Seven

The attorney's clerk likewise declared…

Book Twelve, Chapter Eight

Their meal being over, Jones was again preparing to sally…

Book Twelve, Chapter Nine

The clock had just struck three when they arrived…

Book Twelve, Chapter Ten

Jones, as the reader knows…

Book Twelve, Chapter Eleven

Book Twelve, Chapter Twelve

Had this history been writ in the days of superstition…

'About a tousand or two tousand year ago…'

Jones greatly applauded the justice of the sentence…

Book Twelve, Chapter Thirteen

'Undoubtedly,' cries Partridge…

Book Twelve, Chapter Fourteen

Jones at first pretended that he would take the fellow at his word…

Book Thirteen, Chapter One

And now, this ill-yoked pair…

Book Thirteen, Chapter Two

Jones, who more than once already…

Book Thirteen, Chapter Three

Book Thirteen, Chapter Four

Book Thirteen, Chapter Five

The footman, having now recovered his legs…

Book Thirteen, Chapter Six

Mr. Jones having now determined to go to the masquerade…

Book Thirteen, Chapter Seven

Jones had never less inclination to an amour than at present…

Book Thirteen, Chapter Eight

'This was a love-match, as they call it, on both sides…'

Book Thirteen, Chapter Nine

Though Jones saw all these discouragements on the one side…

Book Thirteen, Chapter Ten

Book Thirteen, Chapter Eleven

Sophia stood trembling all this while.

Having advanced a few steps…

Book Thirteen, Chapter Twelve

Book Fourteen, Chapter One

Now it happens that this higher order of mortals is not to be seen…

Book Fourteen, Chapter Two

Jones begged her only to whisper…

Book Fourteen, Chapter Three

As soon as Partridge arrived…

Book Fourteen, Chapter Four

'Lookee, Mr. Nightingale,' said Jones…

Book Fourteen, Chapter Five

'This letter, sir, I received within a fortnight…'

Book Fourteen, Chapter Six

When Jones had read this letter…

Book Fourteen, Chapter Seven

'Common sense, indeed,' said Nightingale…

Book Fourteen, Chapter Eight

There is scarce anything which so happily introduces men…

The young lady whom Mr. Nightingale had intended for his son…

Book Fourteen, Chapter Nine

'How, sir?' replies young Nightingale…

Book Fourteen, Chapter Ten

Book Fifteen, Chapter One

Book Fifteen, Chapter Two

'Nay, my lord,' said she…

Book Fifteen, Chapter Three

There was no farther evidence necessary…

Book Fifteen, Chapter Four

Book Fifteen, Chapter Five

But a more lucky circumstance happened for poor Sophia…

As Lord Fellamar was very well assured…

Book Fifteen, Chapter Six

The squire had no sooner read the letter…

Book Fifteen, Chapter Seven

Nothing could equal the dilemma to which Jones was now reduced.

And now Jones was unwillingly obliged to return to his own apartment…

Book Fifteen, Chapter Eight

Book Fifteen, Chapter Nine

Jones, having very attentively heard all that Nightingale had to say…

After some hesitation, Jones, upon the strength of this assurance…

Book Fifteen, Chapter Ten

In the situation that he and his mistress were in at this time…

Book Fifteen, Chapter Eleven

Book Fifteen, Chapter Twelve

Book Sixteen, Chapter One

Book Sixteen, Chapter Two

Upon these words the gentleman returned a very short verbal rebuke…

Here the squire began to look wild…

Book Sixteen, Chapter Three

Sophia, notwithstanding her long fast…

Book Sixteen, Chapter Four

'Why, you are to blame, brother,' answered she.

Book Sixteen, Chapter Five

Mr. Jones having spent three hours in reading…

During the second act, Partridge made very few remarks.

Book Sixteen, Chapter Six

Book Sixteen, Chapter Seven

'I am very sorry, madam,' cried Blifil…

Book Sixteen, Chapter Eight

In the progress of their conversation…

Book Sixteen, Chapter Nine

There are some fine women…

Book Sixteen, Chapter Ten

Book Seventeen, Chapter One

Book Seventeen, Chapter Two

'Indeed, Mrs. Miller,' said Allworthy…

Book Seventeen, Chapter Three

'Thwackum and Square, who both alike…'

Blifil now desired to be permitted to speak a few words.

Book Seventeen, Chapter Four

'No, no, miss,' cries the aunt…

Book Seventeen, Chapter Five

'Come, come, Mr. Jones,' says Mrs. Miller…

Book Seventeen, Chapter Six

Though Sophia read the letter twice over with great attention…

Book Seventeen, Chapter Seven

Book Seventeen, Chapter Eight

This last speech was made in the absence of Sophia…

Book Seventeen, Chapter Nine

A very mournful scene now past between the prisoner and his friends…

She now entered the room with an air of gaiety…

Book Eighteen, Chapter One

Book Eighteen, Chapter Two

As sights of horror were not so usual to George…

Book Eighteen, Chapter Three

When Dowling attended…

Book Eighteen, Chapter Four

The reader will, after this…

Book Eighteen, Chapter Five

Mr. Allworthy sharply rebuked her for this impetuosity…

Book Eighteen, Chapter Six

'Pray,' said Allworthy, 'do not be so particular…'

Book Eighteen, Chapter Seven

'It was then contrived…'

Book Eighteen, Chapter Eight

Mrs. Waters fell now upon her knees before him…

Allworthy stood a minute silent, lifting up his eyes…

Book Eighteen, Chapter Nine

'Nothing but truth,' says Sophia…

'I sincerely wish you joy, sir…'

Western had been long impatient…

Book Eighteen, Chapter Ten

'Prudence is indeed the duty which we owe to ourselves…'

A servant now acquainted them that Mr. Western was below-stairs…

Book Eighteen, Chapter Eleven

Jones expressed great astonishment…

Jones went up to Blifil's room…

Book Eighteen, Chapter Twelve

'Name any proof in my power,' answered Jones eagerly.

At this instant Western, who had stood some time listening…

Book Eighteen, Chapter The Last

Thus, reader, we have at length brought our history to a conclusion…
