1 There were three ladies in the room and one gentleman.
2 I entered, therefore, and found myself in a pretty large room, well lighted with wax candles.
3 So, I nodded, and then he nodded again, and made room on the settle beside him that I might sit down there.
4 I divined that my coming had stopped conversation in the room, and that its other occupants were looking at me.
5 Like the clock in Miss Havisham's room, and like Miss Havisham's watch, it had stopped at twenty minutes to nine.
6 We went in at the door, which stood open, and into a gloomy room with a low ceiling, on the ground-floor at the back.
7 It was then I began to understand that everything in the room had stopped, like the watch and the clock, a long time ago.
8 The rush of the daylight quite confounded me, and made me feel as if I had been in the candlelight of the strange room many hours.
9 There was not much time to consider the subject, for we were soon in Miss Havisham's room, where she and everything else were just as I had left them.
10 On the present festive occasion he emerged from his room, when the blithe bells were going, the picture of misery, in a full suit of Sunday penitentials.
11 I could see nothing of the room except the shining of the fire in the window-glass, but I stiffened in all my joints with the consciousness that I was under close inspection.

14 She rented a small cottage, and Mr. Wopsle had the room up stairs, where we students used to overhear him reading aloud in a most dignified and terrific manner, and occasionally bumping on the ceiling.
15 It was when I stood before her, avoiding her eyes, that I took note of the surrounding objects in detail, and saw that her watch had stopped at twenty minutes to nine, and that a clock in the room had stopped at twenty minutes to nine.
16 When I got up to my little room and said my prayers, I did not forget Joe's recommendation, and yet my young mind was in that disturbed and unthankful state, that I thought long after I laid me down, how common Estella would consider Joe, a mere blacksmith; how thick his boots, and how coarse his hands.
17 It being Saturday night, I found the landlord looking rather grimly at these records; but as my business was with Joe and not with him, I merely wished him good evening, and passed into the common room at the end of the passage, where there was a bright large kitchen fire, and where Joe was smoking his pipe in company with Mr. Wopsle and a stranger.
