The Confidence-Man: His Masquerade

 

 

Man in Cream Colors

 

Ch.1: He counteracts the wanted sign for a mysterious impostor by making his own signs advocating charity and trust. He is dressed in cream colors and is deaf and mute. He seems to be just making a short trip. After receiving an injury, he falls asleep on the deck. Ch.2: A crowd criticizes him while he slept. Then it is “not unlikely” that he soon disembarked.
