Arriving in London, Tom Pinch accidentally meets Mrs. Jonas Chuzzlewit (nee Mercy Pecksniff) and is shocked to see that she has suffered at her husband’s hands. He sets up home in Islington with his sister Ruth and is promptly offered a librarian’s job at a most generous salary by a mysterious benefactor. In Wiltshire, Mary Graham receives news that young Martin’s property purchase in Eden has turned out to be a malarial swamp, but that he and Mark Tapley, after a long bout of illness, are on their way home to England. In London Tigg Montague’s investigations have disclosed some damning information about Jonas Chuzzlewit. Montague then attempts to blackmail him into investing more money in his business, but Jonas panics and attempts to abscond to Rotterdam with his wife. Thwarted at the docks by Montague’s agent, he agrees to try to entrap Pecksniff as an investor and persuades Montague to travel to Wiltshire with him to impress his cousin. Traveling through a thunderstorm, their coach is overturned and Jonas is narrowly prevented from arranging Montague’s "accidental" death. Young Martin returns to Wiltshire and, with the wisdom gained from his experience, asks forgiveness of his grandfather. But Pecksniff intervenes and expels him once again. Montague and Jonas dine with Pecksniff, who is persuaded to invest the bulk of his fortune in the hope of a tenfold return. Jonas leaves Montague in Wiltshire to complete the transaction with Pecksniff and returns to London.
