Diary entry from Pip’s point of view.
Today was a new day for me again. I went alone to the churchyard where the tombstones of my parents and my 5 brothers are in the marshes near my house. I live with my sister Mrs Joe Gargery and her husband, Joe Gargery, a blacksmith as a burden as she never likes me and always tells me off for everything. I stayed there near the gravestones until afternoon was returning back home, when I heard a terrible voice which told me to stop. Butterflies stated to fly in my tummy as I stopped and saw him. He was a huge man in some kind of a uniform; I felt it more like a prison uniform. He had iron stuck to his leg and was extremely dirty. He came towards me and picked me and turned me upside down and took a piece of bread which I had kept in my pocket. The huge guy interrogated me and at the end asked me to get a file and a wittle. He also warns me not to tell anybody about him residing in the marshes, otherwise, another person who is accompanying the convict will kill me. I feared him and the other person accompanying him and ran from the spot as fast as I could without bothering to stop or turn behind and see if anybody was following me to my house also, I did not tell anybody about whatever happened in the marshes.
