Mr Hyde lived in the same building which Mr Uttersonhad once looked at with Enfield. He knocked and a smallold woman answered the door. She told Utterson thatMr Hyde was not at home.
"Do you know when he will be back?”
"Oh, no. He's a strange man. He leaves and sometimesdoesn't come back for days. I've heard some strangesounds coming from his room, I can tell you.“
"Well, if he comes back, can you give him my nameand ask him to contact me?“
Mr Utterson gave the old woman a card with his nameand address on it, but he did not believe that Hydewould contact him.
