Here is an answer I poted previously for the same question;

Harris runs a full circle in characteristics; he is rather funny, often quiet(though loud, obnoxious, and rude when angry), and also prone to be a little more than lazy. He's one of those people that simply waits for the next guy to get something done rather than do it himself. Harris also likes to drink (drinking makes him short tempered), and he can be boastful.

from the book three men in a boat

William Samuel Harris, the third of the "three men" in the title of the book. Harris is a young single man with a fondness for drink. J. jokes that no matter where they go lll, Harris always seems to know a good pub nearby and is constantly encouraging his friends to accompany him. Harris gets fairly drunk one night while george and J. have gone of to a nearby town and imagines he is being attacked by swan.

Harris sometimes loses his temper, at which point his friends let him rave until he settles down. Harris imagines that he is an entertaining singer of comic songs, but usually forgets what song he is singing, forgets the words, and loses his temper with the piano player.
