  • "Dudgeon is secretly a rebel, and is considered by his family and friends to be the "Devil's disciple" because of his rebellious personality and unfaithfulness to religion. The main reason why he has turned so "devilish" is because of his rude and inconsiderate mother's rigid piety, which has deterred Dudgeon from following in her footsteps. Dick returns home upon the death of his father to hear the reading of the will. His wickedness appalls Judith, the wife of the town's minister, Anthony Anderson. Richard turns out to be the hero, however. While visiting Anderson's home, Dick is left alone with Judith while Anderson is called out to Mrs. Dudgeon's deathbed. Neither Dick nor Judith finds the tête-a-tête comfortable, but when British soldiers enter and arrest Dick, mistaking him for Anderson, Dick allows them to take him away, knowing that they will hang him. He swears Judith to secrecy lest her husband give the secret away. But when Anderson hears what has happened, he seems to turn into a different man: calling for money and a gun, he rides away. Judith believes her husband to be a coward, while Dick, whom she despised, is a hero."
