Pamela Chapter 74

By Samuel Richardson

Chapter 74

Tuesday Morning

  • In the morning, Mr. B tells Pamela that he's withdrawn his complaint against Mr. Williams.
  • He also shows Pamela a letter from his sister.
  • In the letter, Lady Davers says she has heard rumors that the squire is planning to keep Pamela as a mistress or a wife. She doesn't think either of these is a great idea, and she promises to renounce him if he marries her.
  • Pamela critiques Lady Davers's snobbery and obsession with her ancient family line.
