People have gathered at the marketplace in order to greet the new governor of the election.
Everyone is here to meet the new Governor of election, Pearl.
Pearl continues to yearn for Mr. Dimmesdale, the minister, to hold hands with her Mom and herself in public at daylight before she could fully accept him
Will the minister finally take us into his hands in broad daylight?
He will one day, but not now.
That man must be up to no good...
Hester Prynne receives word from the captain of the vessel that a physician known to her would be aboard the ship which leaves Hester in a daze.
Word beith that a doctor will be on board by the name of Roger Chillingworth. Thank goodness for him!
"Wherefore have all the people left their work-to-day?" (Pearl Ch. 21 Pg. 176) "They wait to see procession pass...the Governor and magistrates are to go by." (Hester Prynne Ch. 21 Pg. 176)
"...Will he hold out both his hands to me, as when thou ledst me to him from the brookside?" (Pearl Ch. 21 Pg. 176) "He will be there...But he will not greet thee to-day; nor must thou greet them." (Hester Prynne Ch. 21 Pg. 176)
"What mean you... have you another passenger?" (Hester Prynne Ch. 21 Pg. 180) "Why, know you not... this physician here--Chillingworth... is minded to try my cabin-fare with you?" (Mariner/Captain Ch. 21 Pg. 180)
