Ross stands trial for smuggling but the case is dismissed when Jud and others provide an alibi and there is more good news when a seam of tin is found in Wheal Grace. Dwight is less fortunate as Caroline returns his letters with a written rejection and he considers becoming a naval surgeon. Elizabeth also has a setback when her mother falls ill and Warleggan is quick to ingratiate himself with an offer of help and marriage, which she accepts out of pragmatism rather than love. Ross, already distraught when a mining accident kills two of his workers, reacts badly and violently to the news, which does not go unnoticed by Demelza.
