Bessie Mullins, the biggest gossip in Lark Rise, points the finger at Daniel when her daughter Emily gets pregnant and refuses to name the father. She has no proof and nobody believes her until Minnie sees Daniel give Emily money. Dorcas discovers he was only acting as agent for the real father, the son of Emily's wealthy employers, who have sent him abroad in disgrace. Bessie apologizes to Daniel and, although she considers returning the money as a gesture of defiance, decides it is better for the baby if she and Emily keep it. Twister sulks when Queenie sells his chair to pay the rent and Minnie and Alf get close, though a letter from Fisher Bloom to say he is returning to the area drives a wedge between Laura and Daniel.
