Summary

In Section 14, Paul told Jane that he drove Iris and Ethel, the maid and cook at Upleigh, to the Titherton Station. He said he “wanted to give them a proper goodbye” (37).

In Section 16, Paul undressed Jane and told her that he was “mugging up” (40) his law books, which was his excuse for getting out of meeting the families.
