Book 3: Chapter 6 Summary

It takes two days to sell all of the furniture; meanwhile, Mr. Tulliver is not better, and they decide that they should keep him there even during the sale rather than risk moving him. After the sale, Bob Jakin, Tom's old friend, shows up. As he and Tom converse, Maggie comes in. Only now does she realize that even the books are gone. Bob has come to offer ten sovereigns he was given for putting a fire out at a mill. He has decided to become a packman, a door-to-door salesman, and assures Tom that he can spare the sovereigns; he knows they're going through bad times. Maggie and Tom assure him that they appreciate his kindness, but they cannot take them. Maggie tells him that if they ever need help, they'll know they can depend on him and will come to him.
