Jim, the narrator : Jim describes an old incident and remembers how people had misbehaved when a German singer Herr Boschen sang a song for them. It had happened because he and his companion had regarded themselves as superior to the two young men from Germany. He and Harris boast that they could not be blackmailed by a gentleman who told them that they had tresspassed.
Harris : Harris is a well-made man. He looks hard and bony. He is bold and asks the gentleman how he would remove them from the spot. He threatens him in such a way that he never returns.
