[Day 229, Page 247]
Their meeting over, Pip invites Jaggers to dine with Herbert and himself back at Barnard’s Inn. (This is still Pip’s 21st birthday!) Jaggers accepts but makes Pip wait while he writes some letters and washes his hands. During this time, Pip asks Wemmick what he thinks of Pip helping out, financially, a friend struggling in business (Herbert, no doubt). Wemmick starts naming off bridges in London: London bridge, Southwark, Blackfriars, Waterloo, Westminster and Vauxhall. Hmmm….. Wemmick is a strange man!
