Moby Dick

Why does Coffin tell Ishmael Queequeq is alright, what does Queequeg do that gives Coffin this confidence?

This has to do with Chapter 3! Thank you!

Coffin tells Ishmael that the harpooner didn't take the heads (the decapitated heads), he bought them. The harpooner is off trying to make a living...... he's completely civilized....... probably more so than most of the others at the inn. m
