Art Expectations Day 180

Convict #1 has just two things to say about Pip’s hometown:
1) it’s all mudbank, mist, swamp and work
2) it’s all work, swamp, mist and mudbank

Pip takes the first chance he can to get away from the convicts by jumping out of the stagecoach “at the first lamp at the first stones of the town pavement.” Whew!

Pip checks into the Blue Boar Inn and sits down to some dinner. The waiter asks him if he wants Pumblechook to be sent over. “No, certainly not.” Why would he ever want to see that man?!
