She had a law opinion of their virtue and was sure that they could do everything. Those thoughts rankled her. The only comfort was that all of them were very greedy and without Julia’s money Tom wouldn’t be able to lead a life, he had got used to.
Or he would have to break himself of the habit of throwing his money about. 3. Julia was shocked to find out that people had been gossiping about her.
Her reputation had been so good for many years, that she thought she could afford to do every thing she wanted. It was Michael, who first noticed that. He accused Tom jokingly of compromising Julia.

She racked her brains to understand who could have told it to him. Then suddenly it occurred to her, that it was Dolly, no doubt. 4.
