The Shoe and The Letter
The Shoe and The Letter.
Another keepsake that I always have close by me is the shoe. On that special day, forty years ago, I had one wedding slipper on me, and was about to slip on the matching pair, when I learned of Compeyson’s deception. Ever since then, I have worn the one shoe, while its untouched twin has been collecting dust on the table beside me.
Estella seems to care a bit for Pip, considering she’s trying to warn him. She knows the effort is futile, yet she still tries. This Bentley Drummle figure seems to have intrigued Estella. She better not get tightly involved with him. I don’t want her to be hurt. Mrs. Brandley was a friend of mine. I knew her when she wasn’t a widow and when I wasn’t in this condition. I knew for sure she would treat Estella well. I was also right about her knowing many people in London to introduce to Estella. I shall write her a small letter back, later.
