Book 8: Chapter 2 Summary

The Temple of Vulcan, an hour later, Aug. 4, 1714

Daniel and Ravenscar get ready for a party and a meeting of the Clubb at Ravenscar's house.

Daniel tells Ravenscar that he has neither confirmed nor condemned Sir Isaac as master of the mint.

Daniel feels obligated, however, to protect Sir Isaac because Sir Isaac is his friend. Their friendship may cloud Daniel's judgment and cause him to make rash decisions.
