David begins school the next day and is introduced to his new schoolmaster, Doctor Strong, a  carelessly dressed man with a "lustreless eye," whose life's project is the writing of an immense  never-to-be-completed dictionary. With Dr. Strong is his pretty wife, Annie, who is much younger than  her husband. In a conversation between Wickfield and Strong, David hears about one of Annie's  cousins, a Mr. Jack Maldon, apparently a loafer, for whom Mr. Wickfield is trying to find some  suitable provision. Although school is very pleasant, it has been so long since David has mingled with boys his own age  that he is apprehensive about how he will get on with his classmates. He has such an initial fear of  his new situation that he hurries back to Mr. Wickfield's at the close of the first day of classes to avoid  meeting any of the students.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
