The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman

  

by Laurence Sterne

The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman Book 7, Chapter 34 Summary

  • Tristram insists that he owes the king nothing. The commissary (that's who the guy is) says that Tristram actually owes 6 livres and four sous for the next stage of his journey. Tristram explains that he's planning to take a boat, but the commissary doesn't budge (just like the ass, eh?).
