Middlemarch Book 8, Chapter 72 Summary

  • Dorothea is inclined to believe the best of everybody, of course.
  • Mr. Farebrother agrees with her, but doesn't know how they can go about vindicating Lydgate without asking him directly, and he would take that as an insult.
  • Dorothea isn't afraid of that, though. She has a feeling that Lydgate wouldn't mind her sympathy and support.
  • But Mr. Farebrother, Sir James, Mr. Brooke, and even Celia all tell her to wait and see.
