The Personal History And Experience Of David Copperfield The Younger
CHAPTER 11 : I BEGIN LIFE ON MY OWN ACCOUNT, AND DON'T LIKE IT
Copperfield has to work at Murdstone and Grinby’s warehouse by the waterside.
The warehouse is ‘literally overrun by rats’.
The business is the supply of wines and spirits to certain packet ships.
Copperfield has to wash bottles and then glue the labels on, for 6 shillings a week.
Mr Micawber tells Copperfield that he is to stay with them as a lodger (because they owe a lot of money).
Copperfield writes to Peggotty many times but doesn’t want her to know the truth about his job.
Micawber is arrested and sent to King’s Bench (debtors) Prison.
Copperfield visits him.
Captain Hopkins complains about debtor’s prisons and this allows Micawber and some others to be freed.
