Art Expectations Day 158

158 GreatExp canoeing whole SM

It looks like Pip, even though he is keeping the apartment in London, still spends a good deal of time at Herbert’s family home in Hammersmith. He has become friends with the tenant Startop (described as effeminate) but seems to mistrust the other tenant Drummle (described as sluggish).

They often go rowing on the river along with Herbert. Pip describes his and Startop’s canoes as “breaking the sunset or the moonlight in midstream.” This sounds beautiful!

Camilla, Mr Pocket’s (the dad’s) sister and Georgiana, a cousin, show up for a visit. Pip suspects they hate him for coming into his prosperity so easily. I suspect they are jealous that he is getting Miss Havisham’s fortune!
