Well, within these chapters the first thing that Pip does with his yearly allowance (since he has turned 21 and now handles his money affairs himself) is to set up a job and partnership for Herbert. Pip goes to Walworth to meet with Wemmick and arranges through Wemmick that Herbert will become the partner of a young merchant in exchange for Pip's giving the merchant 250 pounds and regular payments. It will remain a secret that Pip is the one financing the arrangement.
