Chapter 45 Summary

Having been advised by Wemmick not to go home, Pip travels to Hummums in Covent Garden to find temporary lodging. He is haunted by the phrase and goes to see Wemmick at Walmorth. As Wemmick is always discreet, particularly about someone like Magwitch, he tells Pip that there is an awareness that a certain "Tom, Jack or Richard" is no longer at his place overseas and that Pip's lodgings are being watched. He will not say by whom, but he clearly indicates that Compeyson is alive and living in London. Pip stays with the Aged until it is time to leave.
