Yes, Jacob feels that he's a burden on his children. They do their duty by taking turns visiting him each Sunday. But this is obviously a duty they don't want to do.
oh yes burden be the word i looking for :D thanks very very much ms. sue :)
At this point in the novel, it's not clear that visiting Jacob is a duty his children don't want. It becomes obvious later.
