These are a lot of questions. Ask the ones you need the most separately, NOT all at one time!

1. Wang Lung's nephew's slave gives birth to a girl. Wang Lung treats the slave and her child respectfully, assigning her to care for his aunt until her death. He gives the slave a private room and even some silver, but the slave requests that the silver be used as a dowry; she desires a trustworthy poor man as a husband and Wang Lung agrees to marry her off after his aunt dies. This promise recalls O-lan, for he was once such a man as this servant now seeks.
