1 Mile from Inner Station

One mile to the inner station, the natives attack again. This time, Marlow’s helmsman, in an attempt to close the blinds, is killed by a spear. He falls onto Marlow’s feet and bleeds on his shoes. Marlow for reasons unknown even to him, takes his shoes and throws them over the side of the ship. The pilgrims once again celebrate their success and Marlow becomes aggravated with their undeserved self-praise.
