this man tried to murder me.

I dragged him back here.

He's a gentleman, if you plese, this villain.

And now, the Hulks has got its

gentleman back again, through me.

I should have been a dead man

if you had not come up.

He's a born liar

and he'll die a liar.

Look at his face,

isn't it written there?

Let him cast those eyes on me.

I defy him to do it.

That's how he looked when

we were tried together.

- He never looked at me.

- Not much to look at.

- You!

- Stop it!

I told you he would

murder me if he could!

Enough of this!

Company! March!

Look, I took some wittles off,

up at the village,

where the church stands.

- You mean stole?

From the blacksmith.

It was some broken wittles...

and a dram of liquor and a pie.

I'm sorry you missed such articles.

Especially the pie.

Come on!

How does he know I was the blacksmith?

Come on, old chap. It's only

a dream that's taken all of you.

It was real, Joe.

Always seem so.

But this is a true fear, Pip.

Me hold in your hand

and you're safe.

and sound and warm

in your bed.

Look like them poor creatures.

No comfort for them tonight,

don't you reckon.

What a scholar you are,

old chap.

- Ain't you?

- I should like to be.

Why, here's a J and a O equal to anything!

But read the rest, Joe.

The rest, eh, Pip?

Why, here's three Js and three Os...

and three J-O...

Why Joes, in it, Pip!

My dear Joe,

I hope you're quite well

and I hope I shall soon

be able for the teach you, Joe,

and then we shall be so glad

when I am apprentice

to you, Joe

what lurks, believe me.

Astonishing! You are a scholar.

How do you spell Gargery, Joe?

- I don't spell it at all, Pip.

- But supposing you did?

It can't be supposed.

Didn't you ever go to school, Joe,

when you were as little as me?
