CHAPTER 45 – MR DICK FULFILS MY AUNT’S PREDICTIONS

Mr Dick admits that he’s simple. Dr Strong makes his will and Annie apologises for the affair with Maldon.

 

CHAPTER 46 – INTELLIGENCE

As Copperfield walks past Steerforth’s home, Dartle says that she wants to talk to him. Littimer tells of how they went to France, Italy, and Switzerland. Steerforth ‘became restless’ Littimer says, and Emily is told that she should marry ‘a very respectable person’.

Littimer goes on to say that Emily ran away from Italy and hasn’t been seen since. Steerforth sacked Littimer and sent him home.

Copperfield tells Mr Peggotty this information and he is convinced that Emily is still alive. They decide to look for Martha, to see if she knows where she is.

 

CHAPTER 47 – MARTHA

Mr Peggotty and Copperfield are in Westminster. Martha tells them that Emily is pleasant, kind and gentle.

When Copperfield gets back to London, he sees his aunt’s light on and the door open, with a man standing outside – the same man that was a nuisance in Dover. She reveals that he is her husband.
