Day One Thousand One Hundred Seventy Eight #DayoftheEndoftheWorld

Magwich insists that we abandon him and return to the hiding place. And argues he will follow when he can walk on his own.

If Elijah had not finally consented to rest, I am sure that Magwich’s argument would have ended in short order.  But it had fallen to me to attend to him instead and I confess I was feeling keenly the need to return, if only to inquire about Tomas and Sy.

I was at the point of giving in when Reuben entered to silence our bickering. A platoon of soldiers was approaching.

We held our breath as Reuben went down to observe.

They moved on without entering and Magwich did not renew his demand that we leave.
