The frenzied man is fleeing a lost battle. When Henry clutches him as he runs by, he can only stammer out the word "why." The man who he stopped screams, "Let go me! Let go me!" When Henry does not, the man hits him on the head with his rifle butt and runs away. The man is afraid and running for his life.
