Just after lunch the friends reached Ship lake. They decided that since it was too late to go to Reading, they agreed to stay the night at one of the Ship lake island, since they had time on their hands they decided to cook Irish stew for supper. Since George volunteered to cook, Harris and the narrator decided to peel the potatoes, thinking it to be an easy job. But the harder they peeled and scrapped them, they left a mess. So in the end they added all the odds and ends from their hamper to make a pot of a flavored stew.
After supper George and the narrator went to Henley but Harris stayed behind because of a Bad Stomach, accompanied by his drink and a pipe. However while returning from Henley the two friends lost their way. They shouted at way inlet for Harris since he was at the boat but they only heard silence. They were feeling cold and miserable because rain was lashing down making them soaked to their skin.
However just when they had given up hope, they caught a slight glimmer flickering on the opposite bank among the trees. Soon they realized that it was their boat so they yelled and immediately heard Montmorency barking. Somehow they boarded the boat but Harris had strangeness around him and on enquiring, they learnt that he had a fight with the swans but he defeated them with skill and courage. However, next morning, a sober Harris had no clue of anything of the previous night.
