Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde Chapter 7

By Robert Louis Stevenson

Chapter 7

  • Mr. Utterson, on his weekly walk with Mr. Enfield, passes by the door that started this whole novel. (That would be the Black Mail Door—remember?)
  • It turns out that the door is a back way to Dr. Jekyll’s house.
  • The two friends step into the courtyard with all the windows, and chance to see Dr. Jekyll at the window, looking sickly and pale.
  • They chat briefly before Dr. Jekyll completely freaks out, slamming the window and scaring Mr. Utterson and Mr. Enfield.
