Pamela Chapter 7

By Samuel Richardson

Chapter 7

Letter IV

  • Pamela now writes her mother directly to let her know that Mr. B's sister, Lady Davers, has suggested that Pamela come to work for her.
  • According to Mrs. Jervis, the housekeeper, who overheard this conversation and relayed it to Pamela—(yes, that's a lot of secondhand info), Mr. B thought that was a stellar idea.
  • Since Mr. B doesn't seem too possessive about her, Pamela says there's no reason to get upset and they should feel free to spend that money.
