The plague has only begun to invade St. Swithin's when Martin divides the population into two equal  parts, injecting one half with the plague  phage  and leaving the other half unprotected. The unphaged  half has far more victims than the other, and Martin is elated. Cecil Twyford risks his life nursing his  servants, and Joyce Lanyon takes over the cooking, bed making, and other duties. The bond of resemblance as brother and sister is tightened as Martin and Joyce work together,  although he struggles against his liking for her. After trying for two hours to reach Leora by  telephone, he gives up, assured that within three or four days he can go for her and bring her to St.  Swithin's. Left practically alone in the big house, Leora is lonely and sleepless. She has forgotten to take  another injection of the  phage  as Martin had asked her to do. News comes that Oliver Marchand, the  black physician on whom she is dependent for medical care, is dead. The butler leaves to go to his

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
