After leaving Agnes, David goes downstairs to see Uriah Heep and Mr. Wickfield. Mrs. Heep is also  living there, and David thinks of the Heeps as "two great bats hanging over the whole house and  darkening it with their ugly forms." Next day, David takes a walk. He is followed by Uriah, who  confides that he fears that David might be a rival for Agnes. David reluctantly tells Uriah that he is  "engaged to another young lady," which obviously relieves Uriah. Reassured, Uriah tells David about  his education in the London charity schools, where he learned to eat "umble pie with an appetite."  Now Uriah is proud to note that he has "a little power."

    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.
