Each evening Barkis courts Peggotty by calling at the house with a gift and sits silently in the parlor  while Peggotty sews. One day, just before the end of his visit, David, little Em'ly, Peggotty, and Mr.  Barkis take a holiday trip together. Mr. Barkis stops the coach at a church, and he and Peggotty go  inside. Alone with Em'ly, David professes his love for her, and Em'ly allows him to kiss her. When the  couple returns from the church, David learns that Mr. Barkis and Peggotty have just been married.

    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.
