It turns out that Pip is not to be designed for any profession nor to receive any more formal education. (Someone plans to keep him ignorant and helpless!) Herbert Pocket advises Pip to attend places and events in London to learn as much as possible about society and to gain knowledge that way. Herbert says he will help in any way he can. He is a good tutor for Pip… serious in his task, honest and good.
Pip decides to retain his lodgings at Barnard’s Inn back in town. (I think the Pocket household has driven him crazy!) He goes to see Mr Jaggers to let him know of his plans and to ask for more money for furnishings.
A quick sketch of PIp. I did this in the car recently on a looooong road trip!
