His refusal to answer questions
the answer is his arrival in town in a canoe. i just got this right
Several people in the crowd interrupted and begged him not to talk that way to an old man and a preacher.
“Preacher be hanged, he’s a fraud and a liar. He was up at the Pint that mornin’. I live up there, don’t I? Well, I was up there, and he was up there. I see him there. He come in a canoe, along with Tim Collins and a boy.”“Preacher, my butt—he’s a fraud and a liar. He was up at the point in the morning. I live up there, don’t I? Well, I was up there, and so was he. I saw him up there. He came in a canoe along with Tim Collins and a boy.”
He misuses the word funeral orgy, instead of funeral obsequies, which confirms the doctor's suspicions of this fraud.
