Jim Carter is caught poaching and Ross goes to court to plead for a non-custodial sentence for the boy but a vengeful Nicholas Warleggan gives him a two year prison term.

He gives Jim's wife Jinny her job instead. Ross has discovered a valuable seam of copper in the mine and is preparing to get back with Elizabeth,who has left Francis. However he discovers from Jinny that he is the father of Demelza's unborn child. He overtakes her as she travels to Truro for an abortion and proposes marriage to her. Written by don @ minifie-1

Quotes

Demelza Carne: [to Ross] I'm to be punished because I got above myself. I should have been like Margaret, your lady of pleasure in Truro and asked for money this mornin', and that would have been fine. You'd have thought nothing of it.
