Summary: 

Judith tries to give Charles Etienne Saint-Valery Bon a way out by advising him to leave his wife and child with Clytemnestra, or her, and go "into the North, the cities"; he refuses (168). [SOURCE: Because Quentin thinks he and Shreve can both sound "exactly like Father" immediately before this passage begins, there is no way to say for sure who is speaking - Father, or Shreve, or Quentin, or some combination.]
