XXXII. The Golden Dragon:  This chapter title appears to be an error, because there is no golden dragon in the novel.  In this chapter Mary and Madam Wallingford journey to England on the Golden Dolphin.

Note on the Text

Except that most ordinary contractions have been closed (did n't becomes didn't), this text is intended to duplicate the 1901 first edition of The Tory Lover.  It has been checked against the 1975 Old Berwick Historical Society edition, an exact photographic reprinting of the first edition.  Apparent errors in the text have been marked with brackets [ ]; and these have been checked against the 1901 reprint edition, which has exactly the same errors (except for a correction of removing a comma from the opening quotation on p. 268).  Illustrations are from the 1901 reprint edition.

Edited and annotated by Terry Heller, Coe College.
