I do not believe he meant Mrs. Gilbury any harm, moreover, I fell he was just a sad man in a bad place in his life. However, that does not excuse his actions. The world is changing and maybe back when Mr. Lewiston was younger his constant courting attempts her would seem endearing, but not today and especially not to a younger…
