Stacked and ready to go. Welcome back! It was a busy holiday season with family in town for Thanksgiving and out of town for us for Christmas. I did the next six days/pages on the road. Seriously, in the car, going down the highway. (I wasn’t driving!)
[Day 331, Page 354] Pip has received a note from Wemmick to start planning to get Provis out of town, quick. The jig is up! They’ll take him down the river as far as they can. Then catch a steamer to some far away place: Hamburg, Rotterdam or perhaps, Antwerp. Sounds exciting! Pip obtains passports and Herbert asks Startop to help with the rowing (since Pip’s arms and hands are still badly burned from the fire at Satis House). Startop agrees. All is set. Herbert and Startop will row. Pip will steer and Provis will just sit quietly. They make their get-away plan for the following Wednesday. Herbert will get Provis from Mill Pond Bank (Clara’s family home where he’s been hiding out).
Happy New Year to you all! It’s now been four years since I started this project. About three years longer than I thought it’d take! Getting close to the end now, so close.
