Joe is a kind soul. He wants the convict to eat rather than starve,

"God knows you're welcome to it - so far as it was ever mine," returned Joe, with a saving remembrance of Mrs. Joe. "We don't know what you have done, but we wouldn't have you starved to death for it, poor miserable fellow-creatur. - Would us, Pip?"

I think the convict means any malice, he is honest about his intentions. The convict is just hungry.


Can you provide some quotes?
