On the eve of Ross's trial in Bodmin a party is thrown to celebrate the victory of newly-elected local M.P. Unwin Trevaunance,who brings with him Caroline Penvenen,a spirited teen-aged heiress who is aware that he is marrying her for her money. At the party a drunken Francis accuses George of sponsoring the pamphlets defaming Ross and then goes back to his room to kill himself,being dissuaded by Dwight Enys. Demelza also attends the function,deliberately seeking out the judge who will be trying Ross and captivating him as the only interesting person to have spoken to him all evening. However she is prevented from speaking to him about the court case. Written by
