in American Senator

Chapter 05 – Reginald Morton


Reginald Morton’s name is derived from the Latin rex (stem reg-) meaning “king.”  When first introduced, Reginald is far from regal:  he is not the squire of Dillsborough, and he is unable to articulate his feelings about Mary Masters.  However, by the end of The American Senator, he will have grown into the Latin meaning of his name.  [CMC 2012]
