'Tut-tut' (in reply to Lanyons harsh words)

"Talk with me of other things"

'to be destroyed unread' (if Utterson dies early)

This highlights the importance of keeping secrets in the Victorian era


Give a quote that tells us how Utterson felt to be denied admittance by Jekyll at the end of the chapter and why may this be so?

Utterson was "relieved to be denied admittance"

- perhaps because hes too scared to face pure evil/sin himself
