    look back upon

    What does 'look back upon' mean in the sentence:

    'Mr. Meagles called only one remembrance to his aid that really did him good.

    'It's very gratifying, Arthur,' he said, 'after all, to look back upon.'

    'The past?' said Clennam.

    'Yes - but I mean the company.'

    Thanks in advance

    Mr Meagles is remembering the things that happened in the past.

    Re: look back upon

    Is there any unfinished sentence here? I mean the second one.
