From the text:

"in the manner of my friend I was struck with an incoherence -- an inconsistency...habitual trepidancy, and excessive nervous agitation...His action was alternately vivacious and sullen. His voice varied rapidly from a tremulous that...of the lost drunkard, or the irreclaimable eater of opium"
