The Struggles of Brown, Jones, and Robinson. By One of the Firm Ch. 22–24  [9/9]

[Anthony Trollope]


Novel, Serial


Adulteration, Commerce

    In reflecting on his commercial principles, George Robinson asks himself, 'Of what use is all this about adulteration? If Mrs. Jones will buy her sausages at a lower price per pound than pork fetches in the market, has she a right to complain when some curious doctor makes her understand that her viands have not been supplied exclusively from the pig? [...] If there be dishonesty in this, it is with the purchaser, not with the vendor' (309).
