The next morning, Silas has a surprising announcement. He wants to return to Lantern-Yard, to see if anything has come up to show that he's innocent.
Eppie and Silas make their way to Silas's hometown, which is now a big manufacturing city.

That decides it: Raveloe is now officially Silas's home—and it only took thirty-one years.
