Middlemarch Book 8, Chapter 73 Summary
- Lydgate is miserable again. He doesn't know how to vindicate himself.
- But he also has to ask himself whether he would have asked more questions about Raffles's death if he hadn't just gotten a huge loan from Bulstrode.
- He considers returning the money to Bulstrode, but how can he, when it would mean going deep into debt again? What would Rosamond say?
