Joe's response.....

"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?"

Joe is a good man through and through. He's generous with everything he has, and he doesn't begrudge anyone anything they need.
