Sam's jealousy of Elizabeth's dancing tutor, Mr Pembleton, begins to run out of control.

Sam goes riding in Hyde Park but his horse starts fighting with other horses so he has to make a hasty exit. A keen scholar, he's learning the duodecimal system but it's not enough to distract him from his current obsession, his jealousy of his wife's dancing teacher, Mr Pembleton, which is beginning to run out of control. He's even coming home at lunchtime to check if the beds are rumpled.
