Jonas organizes an uncharacteristically lavish funeral for his father and then, encouraged by Pecksniff, returns with him to Wiltshire to recuperate and pay further attention to Charity. In the event, he proposes to Mercy, Pecksniff’s younger, prettier daughter. Charity is humiliated by Jonas’s deception and Mercy's acceptance of it. In the uproar that follows, old Martin and Mary Graham arrive unexpectedly on their promised visit, forcing Pecksniff into ludicrous deceptions to create an illusion of peace in the house. Tom Pinch, though secretly in love with Mary himself, brings news to her that young Martin has reached New York and that he and Mark Tapley have purchased a property in Eden, a new development on the Mississippi. Old Martin tires to warn Mercy of the dangers of entering into a marriage without love, but heedlessly she allows herself to be taken back to London by the loyal old clerk of the late Anthony Chuzzlewit.
