Gemma and her family arrive at the Bethlem Dance, only to meet Felicity, and Ann. And Nell Hawkins discloses the origin of the Temple in a code to them all.
The next day is Christmas, and Gemma's father hasn't come home yet, so she finds him at an Opium bar.
Ann, Felicity, and Gemma then get ready for Felicity's Christmas ball. Later in the dance the girls go with Simon to have some liquior, and they all end up drunk and have to leave early. (pages 76) [total pages: 636]
