She persuades a neighbouring farmer to take her to Barchester and bribes her way into the palace. Mrs Proudie has just exerted her power once again over the bishop by 27 making him refuse an invitation from the archbishop because it does not include her.

Though Slope is self-seeking and intent on gaining power and wealth by dubious means, he has an energy and sense of purpose which Arabin lacks.
