employed at a bank, where the only work his friends thought he did was sleep

had some knowledge of the ways of the world and was the one to give sensible advice and suggestions, such as the articles that should be taken along on the trip, the clothes, food, etc.

calmer and less aggressive than Harris.

did not appear to have much sense of style, however, as evident from the loud blazer he had bought for the trip.

did not like spending much thought on trivial matters as he remarked that ‘if anything was broken, it was broken.’

last one to offer to do anything that required physical labour.

not very quick-witted and depended on the others to lead him. He loved laughing at others but did not enjoy it much when the joke turned on him.

keen to learn to play the Banjo, but he played quite badly and even turned a cheerful song into a mournful tune

some knowledge of cooking, as can be seen by the fact that he made a healthy Irish Stew.
