Chapter 6: Remarkable Incident of Dr. Lanyon Summary 1/3
After Death of Sir Danvers, Hyde seemed to have disappeared completely.
As time passes, Dr. Jekyll becomes healthier looking and began to interact with people again (thru charity work, dinner party etc.)
After the party, he suddenly began to refuse all visitations...
Utterson goes to Lanyon hoping he'd find the reason why Jekyll has done so.
Lanyon says he'll die soon. While on the topic, Utterson mentions Jekyll is looking ill as well.
Lanyon says never to mention Jekyll in front of his face ever again
Theme Analysis Chp 6
In this chapter, Robert Louis Stevenson explores the theme of
by having the characters communicate through letters, sealed and stored in safes so that they can be put together in the end (much like a jigsaw puzzle). Because Jekyll and Lanyon keep saying Utterson will find out later or it's better to not talk about the topic now, it creates a sense of secrecy as well as mystery among the characters in the story.

Chapter 5: Incident of the Letter Summary
Chapter 6 Summary 2/3
Lanyon says Utterson will know the truth later, now is not the time
Utterson goes home and writes to Jekyll talking about being rejected each time he tried to come visit and asked what caused the roughness between his relationship with Lanyon
Jekyll responds saying that he still cares for Lanyon, however he understands and agrees why they must not meet. He says he still considers Utterson as a friend, but he will remain in isolation because he is suffering a punishment he cannot name
Chapter 6 Summary 3/3
few weeks later, Lanyon dies!!
Utterson takes a letter from his safe that Lanyon meant for him to read after he died.
Unfortunately, inside that letter was just another letter that said he can only read it when Jekyll dies.
Utterson overcame his curiosity and puts it away
Weeks passed, but he still gets rejected by Jekyll..
In this chapter, it is apparent that Lanyon has a bad relationship with Jekyll. This is confirmed by both men when Lanyon said, "'I wish to see or hear no more of Dr. Jekyll... I am quite done with that person: and I beg that you will spare me any allusion to one whom I regard as dead'" (25) and when Jekyll said, "'I share his view that we must never meet" (25).
Even though Lanyon and Jekyll were old friends, something seemed to have created a rift between them in their relationship. No one really knows what happened between the two men; only the letter between Lanyon and Utterson would reveal the stress in their relationship. Utterson still remains as good friends of both men, as he has been able to contact Jekyll through one letter and meet with Lanyon. Although they are all pretty close friends, the fact that they all communicate with each other through letters, pretty much supports one of the themes in this chapter, which is secrecy.

Mr. Utterson and his cousin Mr. Enfield were going for an evening stroll and just so happend to walk in front of Hyde's door. They both went to the window to see if they could see Jekyll. Mr. Utterson and Mr. Enfield actually did find Jekyll there in the window. Here Mr. Enfeild is introduced to Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Utterson invites Jekyll to join them
on there evening stroll.
Upon arrival to Dr. Jekylls laboratory, Utterson finds Jekylls deathly ill looking. Jekylls then shows Mr. Utterson a letter that he want to see what he should do with. The letter is from Hyde assuring that Jekyll should not worry about him. Utterson informs Jekyll that Hyde was probably trying to kill him. Utterson then takes the letter and on the way out runs into Poole, the butler, to see if Poole knows who dropped of this letter. Poole has no knowledge of the letter. Later that day, Utterson confides in his clerk Mr. Guest. Guest compares the handwriting of Hydes letter and Jekylls and suggest that it was written by the same hand. Utterson wonders why Jekylls would write a letter for a murderer.
In this Chapter, Robert Louis Stevenson explores the theme of quest for discovery, because Mr. Utterson is trying to find out where Mr. Hyde is and if Dr. Jekylls knows his where abouts. which symbolizes his need for justice.
Chapter 6 Symbols
One symbol presented in this chapter is the letter Lanyon leaves behind for Utterson to read. It represents all the answers to his questions. Kind of like death where you kind of have all of your questions answered.
Another symbol in this chapter would be when Jekyll says he'll be secluded from the outide world. It means he's probably having some kind of change within himself. (Kind of ike he's turning into Hyde)
Mr. Utterson and Jekyll are old
Mr. Utterson and Mr. Enfield
Dr. Jekyll turns fown the offer, so the two men decide to stand at the window and continue with the conversation. But as they decide to do so, Mr. Enfeild and Mr. Utterson witness Dr. Jekyll's face change! (Most likely in to the face of Hyde).
In disbelief and the suprise of horror, Mr. Utterson and Mr. Enfield leave the scene.
Both men return to the city in complete silence. Once they were within the city and amounst more of civilization, Mr. Utterson begins to beg God for forgiveness while Mr. Enfield dismisses himself from the evening stroll in a continuous head nod induced by fear.
In this chapter, Robert Louis Stevenson explores the theme of Conspiracy by exmplifying Dr. Jekyll's high class secrets in having him slam the window shut. Which symbolizes the door to the room with all the answers to Mr. Utterson's questions, being closed.
"That was just what i was about to venture to propose," returned the doctor with a smile. But the words were hardly uttered, before the smile was struck out of his face and succeeded by an expression of such abject terror and despair..." (28-29).
"Presently after, he sat on one side of his own hearth, with Mr. Guest, his head clerk'.......'There was no man from whom he kept fewer secrets than Mr. Guest; and he was not always sure that he kept as many as he meant." (page 22).
