After a bumpy ride, during which Barkis quizzes Peggotty about her "situation," they arrive in  Yarmouth and are welcomed by Ham and Mr. Peggotty. On the way, Peggotty tells David that she  intends to marry Barkis unless "my Davy . . . [is] . . . any-ways against it." David says that he is happy  for her.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.
