Chapter 51 Summary

Pip describes Miss Havisham's accident to Jaggers and explains the funds that she gave him. He has Wemmick draw up the check. Pip then tells Jaggers that he knows that Estella is Provis' daughter. Mr. Jaggers does not reply. When Pip asks Wemmick to try and make Jaggers open up, he mentions something about his father and his pleasant home. Jaggers is amazed to hear this but Wemmick does not want to go into details. Jaggers obliquely confess that he gave Estella to Miss Havisham to save her life, a life threatened by the circumstances of her parent. He defended Molly because she would give up her child to his protection and for adoption. Provis and Molly never knew they were close to each other. Revealing Estella's background would do not good and might hurt her marriage. Wemmick and Jaggers go back to work.
