  • V. Containing matter accommodated to every taste / 150
  • VI. An apology for the insensibility of Mr.Jones to all the charms of the lovely Sophia

  • VII. Being the shortest chapter in this book / 163

  • VII. In which Mr.Allworthy appears on a sick‐bed / 236
  • VIII. Containing matter rather natural than pleasing / 243
