西門慶六妻瓶兒喪子， 五妻金蓮精神抖擻， 百般稱快， 明罵丫頭， 實咒瓶兒， 瓶兒舊病新哀加暗氣暗惱， 氣血不調。
繼西門慶杭州船貨， 南京船貨也抵達， 銀子開路， 逃稅簡易，第三絲綢店開張， 第一天就賣500兩， 可買半個藥店， 西門慶酒宴慶賀， 滿心歡喜， 小兒夭亡全拋腦後。
Ximen’s 5th wife Jin is overjoyed when the 6th wife Ping lost her son. Jin yells at her maid but it means to Ping. Ping is angry without a word. Ping is worn out by her old illness and new sadness.
In addition to Ximen’s silk shipment from Hangzhou, his shipment from Nanjing arrives without paying taxes once he buys out the persons in charge. He opens the 3rd silk store, makes 500 pieces of gold on the 1st day, which is equivalent to buying a half drug store, he is so happy, drinking with friends without thinking of his lost baby.
