“Patie's Wadding (Petie's Wedding)”


Petie comes to Meg to ask if she will marry. She consents but directs him to her father. Petie asks her father, pointing out that he has relatively little. The father consents to the wedding, and to pay for the feast


One has to wonder what is going on beneath the surface here -- the father seems awfully eager to get rid of his daughter.... - RBW
