Exercise 1 ( Page No. : 47 )

  • Q1 Why is the lawyer sent to New Mullion? What does he first think about the place?

    The lawyer was a junior clerk in a magnificent law firm. We didn't prepare legal briefs but his job was to serve summons on a man names Oliver lutkins and he was needed as a witness in a law case. He had expected that the place would be a sweet and simple country village in reality but it was totally opposing to his expectations.

    Q2 Who befriends him? Where does he take him?

    The lawyer was made friend by a delivery man who introduced himself as Bill. He told him the lawyer that he knows Lutkins and those places where he could be. He was ready to help the lawyer in finding Lutkins. He took him to all those places where Lutkins was seen or was known to hang out. They went to fritz’s shop where lutkins played lot of poker; to Gustaff’s barber shop and then to gray’s barber shop where they missed a chance to catch Lutkins by five minutes to the poolroom and many other places before finally taking him to Oliver’s mother’s farm. However, they could not find oliver lutkins.

    Q3 What does he say about Lutkins?

    Bill told the lawyer that lutkins was a hard fellow to catch. He was always up to something or the another. He owned money to many people including bill and had never even return or paid anybody a cent. He said that it was very difficult to make him pay the money that he owes. He also said that oliver played a lot of poker and was good at deceiving people.
