Day 153 page 169
Pip goes to Jaggers’ office, the London lawyer who is in charge of him and his money to let him know of his plans to stay at the Barnard’s Inn apartment. He needs money to furnish the place. Jaggers, wearing bright, creaking boots, appears to be teasing Pip, the boots laughing at him, making Pip uncomfortable asking for the money and feeling ignorant. They settle on 20 pounds and Jaggers sends Pip to see his clerk Wemmick to get it.

Pip tells Wemmick he’s not sure what to make of Jaggers’ strange behavior. Wemmick says Jaggers would take that as a compliment!
