For an hour or more, I remained too (1) stunned to think; and it was not until I began to think, that I began fully to know (2) how wrecked I was, and how (2) the ship in which I had sailed was gone to pieces.
Miss Havisham's intentions towards me, all (3) a mere dream; Estella not (4) designed for me; I only suffered in Satis House as a convenience, a sting for the greedy relations, a (4) model with a (4) mechanical heart to practise on when no other practice was at hand; those were the first smarts I had. But, (5) sharpest and deepest pain of all -- it was for the convict, guilty of I knew not what crimes, and liable to be taken out of those rooms where I sat thinking, and hanged at the (6) Old Bailey door, that I had (7) deserted Joe.
I would not have gone back to Joe now, I would not have gone back to Biddy now, for any consideration: simply, I suppose, because my sense of my own (8) worthless conduct to them was greater than every consideration. No wisdom on earth could have given me the comfort that I should have derived from their simplicity and fidelity; but I could (9) never, never, never, undo what I had done.
