Another black boy Richard's age who works at the rival optical house in Jackson. Mr. Olin and the other white men provoke Harrison and Richard into fighting each other. Finally, the two young men fight each other for five dollars. Afterwards, Richard feels that he has done something wrong and unclean for which he could "never properly atone."
