The boys’ characters clarify at school, John being the fighter and George the friend-maker. Charles Cowden Clarke provides a detailed description of school life. The school turns out to have provided a great education, despite the parents’ unfulfilled desire that they attend Harrow. Grandfather Jennings, described by Abbey as a gourmand, dies while they are at school. The grandmother moves closer to the school, and the children stay with her over holidays. After she hands guardianship over to the conservative Abbey, he withdraws the boys.
