The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman Book 9, Chapter 4 Summary

  • Toby tells Trim that Mrs. Wadman isn't going to be offended, and Trim begins to tell the story of his brother Tom proposing to the Jew's widow, who owned a sausage shop.
  • Of course, that marriage didn't end well: Tom ended up in the Inquisition. Trim waves his cane in the air when he talks about the freedom of singlehood, and Tristram draws a little scribble so we know what it looks like.
  • Toby pauses at the door and looks back at his own little cottage.
