We were certainly lead to believe that Miss. H was his benefactor. I somehow thought that would be too obvious for Dickens. Pips real benefactor had to tie in strongly with the theme of the novel. Making his benefactor a criminal rather than nobility made a lot more sense. I think Pip could not see the truth because he was so caught up in the illusion of money and social status that he missed the truth.
