4 The end of the mystery
The next day O liver travelled with Mr Brownlow, Dr Losberne, Mrs May lie and Rose back to his birthplace. He had been told a little of his history, and knew that there would be more explanations at the end of this journey. He was anxious and uncertain, wondering what he would hear.
eg: Please give me a explanation for your overstay.
It is still uncertain who invented TV.
But towards the end of the journey, he began to recognize familiar places, and in great excitement pointed them out to Rose. There was the path he had taken when he had run away. There, across the fields, was the 'baby farm'.Then, as They drove into the town, he saw the house of Mr So werberry the undertaker, and the workhouse that had been his prison.

They stopped at the biggest hotel in the town, and went in to their rooms. During dinner Mr Brownlow stayed in a separate room, and the older members of the group went in and out with serious faces. Mrs May lie came back with her eyes red from crying. All this made Rose and O liver, who had not been told any new secrets, very nervous and uncomfortable.
At nine o'clock Dr Losberne and Mr Brown low brought Monks into the room. O liver was very surprised; this was the same man he had bumped into once outside a pub, and seen another time with Fagin, looking in at him through the window of the country cottage. O liver was told that Monks was his half-brother, and the boy stared at him in shock and amazement. Monks looked back at him with hatred.
eg: One of my friend bought a cottage last year.
'We have the whole story here in the se papers,' said Mr Brown low, putting them on the table. 'All we need now is for you to sign them, Monks. And to tell O liver what happened.'
