Godfrey is glad that his child is being cared for, but he realizes that to satisfy his conscience he will have to find discreet ways to provide for her, fulfilling his fatherly duty.

The death of Godfrey's wife and the introduction of Marner as Eppie's caretaker has made Godfrey feel "like a man of firmness." Dunstan, still missing, has been given up entirely. Godfrey does not worry about the shadowy power of his brother. He envisions himself as a married man-to Nancy, of course-playing with the children around his own hearth.
