Pages A Busy Day Camilla: Miss Margland is the governess at Cleves. She applied, therefore, at length, to the governess, whose expostulations, she knew by experience, were precisely what Sir Hugh most sedulously aimed to avoid. The delight of Sir Hugh in regaining her, consisted not merely of the renovation of his first prejudice in her favour; it was strengthened by the restoration it afforded his own mind to its natural state, and the relief of being disburthened of a task he was so ill calculated to undertake, as superintending, in any sort, intellectual pursuits.

I enjoyed it, and I’m looking forward to reading Evelina, which I hear moves at a faster pace.
But all ends well as Bellamy accidentally kills himself, Mr Tyrold is freed, Camilla and Edgar are married, Lavinia marries Hal Westwyn, Indiana elopes with a penniless hotheaded military ensign called Macdersey, Clermont gets beaten by a servant he unfairly tried to whip, and Eugenia it is hinted eventually marries Mr Melmond, a man whose fine education and extremely emotional outbursts had won her heart early in the novel.
So if the middle section were truncated I’d have given it a solid 4 stars. It is only Ceciliaor Camillaor Belinda ; or, in short, only some work in which the greatest powers of the mind are displayed, in which the most thorough knowledge of human nature, the happiest delineation of its varieties, the liveliest effusions of wit and humour, are conveyed to the world in the best—chosen language.
Tyrold now also established himself at Cleves, to share the parental task of nursing the afflicted child, whose room he never left, except to give consolation to his unhappy brother, who lived wholly in his own apartment, refusing the sight even of Camilla, and calling himself a monster too wicked to look at any thing that was good; though the affectionate little girl, pining at the exclusion, continually presented herself at his door.

There is a beau involved, Mandlebert, He is attracted to Camilla and she to fanmy, but the modesty of the day keeps the relationship moving along ra Probably the longest book I’ve ever read, other than the Bible.
Indiana now earnestly solicited leave to alight and see the fair; and Edgar offered to be her esquire. Fairly, however faintly, to delineate some of its features, is the sole and discriminate province of the pen which would trace nature, yet blot out personality. In this state of self-punishment he persevered, till the distemper unexpectedly took a sudden and happy turn, and the surgeon made known, that his patient might possibly recover. Sir Hugh Tyrold inherited from his ancestors an unincumbered estate of pounds per annum; which he enjoyed with ease and affluence to himself, and disseminated with a good will so generous, that he appeared to think his personal prosperity, and that of all who surrounded him, bestowed but to be shared in common, rather from general right, than through his own dispensing bounty.
