Mr. Cruncher is confused by Lorry's message that he has to take back to Telllson's Bank. At Tellson's Bank, Mr. Lorry tries to find out more information about his mission by asking the spectre "Buried how long?" The spectre responses by saying eighteen years which refers to how long Dr. Manette has been imprisoned. Mr. Lorry goes on his assignment and waits in Dover for Lucie Manette, the daighter of Dr. Manette. Mr. Lorry and Lucie have met numerous times before as Lorry is a food friend of Dr. Manette. Mr. Lorry delievers the news to Lucie that her father is still alive. Lucie is competely shocked and faints at this realization.
Why was Lorrie assigned the task of telling Lucie that her father was still alive?
Why did Lucie think that her father was dead?
The message that Mr. Cruncher was confused about was when Mr. Lorry replied to Cruncher's note by saying, "Recalled to life."
