[Day 299, Page 320] Pip tells Provis what Wemmick told him. There was a rumor at Newgate Prison that Pip was under suspicion and his home was being watched. By whom? Wemmick told Pip to stay close for now, but that Provis should go into hiding. Eventually Pip would have to get Provis out of the city, perhaps out of the country, “getting him abroad”. Herbert suggests that since he and Pip are both good watermen that they should take him down the river. This would avoid any suspicion from having someone else doing it.
Here’s a “doodle” sketch from the online class I took. Next post will be Day 300! Of course this has taken me way more than 300 days to get to this point. Ah well, happy posting!
