Book 4, Chapter 5 Summary

At an off-hours gathering of mine personnel and U.S. Geological Survey workers under the direction of Clarence King, Helen Hunt Jackson, the wife of a miner, asks how a government surveyor would handle the temptation to give government classified information to a private entrepreneur that could make him a fortune. At first, King and the others laugh off her question. Mrs. King persists, however, and is seconded by Oliver Ward. Sensing the tension in her cabin, Susan gets up and opens some windows to let in fresh air. King answers that hiring people of integrity is the best defense against corruption. Later, as Oliver and Susan go to bed, she chastises him for not speaking more in groups and for not trying to impress the survey people with his abilities and experience. Oliver wonders aloud how he deserves her for a wife.
