Chapter twenty-four follows Hodge into a feverish period of publishing as he completes some twenty articles for the Repertory along with three variations of his Romans commentary. During this period, he struggles with whether he is making the best use of his abilities as life’s brief and precarious nature are brought home to him as his mother dies, the Asiatic Cholera breaks out in New England, and he is confined to his study by lameness in his right leg.
