Joseph, a footman in eighteenth-century England, must protect his virtue from the advances of several women, including Lady Booby, and Betty, a chambermaid.

Drawn, as Fielding said, in imitation of Cervantes, its Don Quixote is the unforgettable Parson Adams -- the unique embodiment of a vigorous, innocent and rational enjoyment of life and the first great comic character in fiction.
