by Laurence Sterne

The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman Book 9, Chapter 6 Summary

  • When Tom got to the shop, a servant girl was fanning flies away. Toby and Trim argue for a few minutes about whether non-white people have souls. Toby shows his good character here: he says that, as no one stands up for women of color, they deserve protection even more.
  • Trim tries to finish his story, but he's can't get back in the right story-telling position.
