Part 1, Chapter 4 Summary

Eugene is born after a long, hard labor, with Gant raving drunk downstairs. Gant loves the little boy and one Sunday takes him for a walk near a field where there is a cow. The child imitates the mooing of the cow, which excites the father, and he races home so he can tell Eliza. She says, "I'll vow, Mr. Gant. I never saw such an idiot with a child."

One day Eugene wanders into a wealthy neighbor's grounds and toddles into the path of a horse, which knocks him down and leaves a wound on his head.
