Chapter 5

Incident of the Letter

Mr. Utterson goes to Dr. Jekyll’s home in the aftermath of Sir Carew’s death. Mr. Utterson asks Dr. Jekyll if he knows the whereabouts of Mr. Hyde. Dr. Jekyll assures Mr. Utterson that Mr. Hyde is gone and will never be heard from again. To support his opinion, Dr. Jekyll shows Mr. Utterson a letter from Mr. Hyde announcing that he is leaving the area to protect Dr. Jekyll’s reputation. Mr. Utterson is relieved to see that Dr. Jekyll is well and apparently safe. However, he is curious about the lack of an envelope or a messenger in regard to the letter. Later, Mr. Utterson shows Hyde’s letter and an invitation from Dr. Jekyll to his clerk and is not very surprised when the clerk suggests both were written by one man.
