The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman Book 7, Chapter 35

By Laurence Sterne

Book 7, Chapter 35

  • Tristram realizes that he's going to have to pay the money, so he decides to make it worth it. He makes a joke about breeches and asses and then reads the bill.
  • It turns out that Tristram has to pay for the journey even though he changed his mind, because the law is that the workers shouldn't lose revenue because travelers are fickle. Fine. Tristram gets ready to pay up.
