# What 'special agreement' does Pip make with Joe regarding Joe's education?

In chapters 8-12 somewhere...10 maybe.

Well, Pip,' said Joe, be it so or be it son't, you must be a common scholar afore you can be a oncommon one, I should hope! The king upon his throne, with his crown upon his 'ed, can't sit and write his acts of Parliament in print, without having begun, when he were a unpromoted Prince, with the alphabet -- Ah!' added Joe, with a shake of the head that was full of meaning, and begun at A too, and worked his way to Z. And I know what that is to do, though I can't say I've exactly done it.'
