Congeries of tales of Barsetshire: of Mr. Soames’s cheque, which Mr. Crawley was accused of stealing; of Major Grantly’s love for Grace Crawley, which so displeased the Archdeacon; of Johnny Eames and his unsuccessful suit for the hand of Lily Dale; of the affairs of the Dobbs Broughtons and Mrs. Van Siever; of the painting of “Jael and Sisera“; and finally the distressful story of how Mrs. Proudie met defeat at the hands of Mr. Crawley and Dr. Tempest, and died, freeing the poor Bishop from his thralldom.
