  • Chapter II St. Ogg's Passes Judgment It was soon known throughout St. Ogg's that Miss Tulliver was come back; she had not, then, eloped in order to be married to Mr. Stephen Guest,—at all events, Mr. Stephen Guest had not married her; which came to the same thing, so far as her culpability was concerned.
