Later that night, the author sits by the fire reading an Arthurian legend about "How Lancelot Slew Two Giants and Made a Castle Free," when at the stroke of midnight, Hank comes and is invited in for a drink and a cigar. After several hot scotch whiskeys, he introduces his tale, "The Stranger's History," that comprises the bulk of the book. Hank calls himself a "Yankee of Yankees," born and raised in Connecticut. This story becomes the quintessential definition of what a true Yankee is supposed to be.
