The cheery man takes Henry through all kinds of forests in the dark. Eventually, he leads him to his regiment, which he had left so long ago. The cheery man departs, wishing Henry luck. The youth then realizes that, in the dark, he had never once seen the man's face. The talkative man realized Henry's forlorn state of mind. He tried to show him a little cheerfulness and help in the hell they were in.
