Quakers were at work in the relief of human suffering as long ago as the Napoleonic Wars of 1815, and since then scarcely a decade has passed without some call upon their services from one or other part of the world. Their programme at the moment, which costs Â£40,000 a year to maintain, includes resettlement work among refugees in Germany and Austria, and a training scheme for Africans who are being resettled in Kenya's new rice-growing villages.

Fred Trent persuades Dick Swiveller to give up Sophia Wackles so that he may be free to marry Little Nell, Fred's sister, and so inherit the money which they imagine the old man to have. Kit is telling his mother that he has waited outside the Old Curiosity Shop, as he does every night to protect Nell while the old man is out gambling, when Nell herself arrives with news that her grandfather, believing that Kit has betrayed him, has been struck down by illness, and that Kit must never come near them again. Quilp and Sampson Brass, his lawyer, take possession of the Old Curiosity Shop and its contents, and early one morning Nell and her grandfather steal secretly from the house and leave London.
