The End of Fagin
The courtroom was full of people waiting to see what would happen to Fagin.
The jury went out to consider the verdict. Fagin waited. Then at last they returned.
There was silence in the courtroom and then the single word: "Guilty". Fagin was taken back to the prison cell. Then he was left along to wait when he would be hanged.
Mr.Browlow and Oliver went to see Fagin in his cell.
"For the love of God,”" said Mr.Brownlow."You are going to die soon. You know that Sikes is dead. Monks told me about the papers. Tell me where these documents are."
Fagin whispered to Oliver that the papers were in a hole of the chimney, in the room of the house where they had first met.
When Oliver and Mr. Browlow left Fagin’s cell, there was a crowd of people outside the prison. They were waiting to see Fagin being hung. In the middle of the crowd stood the gallows.
chimney – труба (дымовая или вытяжная) ; дымоход
