The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman Book 9, Chapter 7 Summary Page 1

  • Tom finds the widow and sits down. She makes sausages, and he praises her work. He begins to help her (in a really sexual way): he takes "hold of the ring of the sausage whilst she stroked the forced meat down with her hand" (9.7.6) and that sort of thing. Finally, she agrees to marry him.
