Here they received two visitors, a Sophia Stacey and her much older travelling companion, Corbet Parry-Jones to be described by Mary as "an ignorant little Welshwoman".

InShelley entered Eton Collegewhere he fared poorly and was subjected to an almost daily mob torment at around noon by older boys, who aptly called these incidents "Shelley-baits". He received his early education at home, tutored by the cleric Evan Edwards of nearby Warnham.

The man of ease, who, by his warm fireside, To deeds of charitable intercourse, And bare fulfilment of the common laws Of decency and prejudice, confines The struggling nature of his human heart, Is duped by their cold sophistry; he sheds A passing tear perchance upon the wreck Of earthly peace, when near his dwelling's door The frightful waves are driven,—when his son Is murdered by the tyrant, or religion Drives his wife raving mad.
