The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman Book 6, Chapter 24 Summary

  • Tom, Trim's Inquisitioned brother, had given him a red-and-fur cap and two Turkish tobacco-pipes (hookahs, in other words). The cap was one of Trim's prized possessions, and he liked to stake it.
  • In this case, he said he'd give away his cap if he couldn't figure out how to please Toby.
  • The next day was a major turning point in the battle that Toby was acting out.
  • He got dressed up for it, putting on a special wig and even shaving for the occasion. This all took so long that it was 10:00 by the time he got out the door.
