Summary
The ailing old Martin Chuzzlewit finds himself surrounded by scheming relatives, all trying to get their hands on his wealth. They have learned that his ward and grandson, young Martin Chuzzlewit, has been disinherited. Pecksniff, a cousin, pleads the cause of young Martin to his grandfather while secretly taking on the boy as an architectural student—premium waived, with hopes of making a match with one of his two daughters. Pecksniff is summoned to London, where the elder Martin warns him that young Martin has already made his matrimonial choice against the old man’s wishes: the boy has secretly courted Mary Graham, a young orphan old Martin has adopted as his companion. Pecksniff readily agrees to dismiss the boy from his Wiltshire home and, instead, receive old Martin and Mary as his guests.
