From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
It's no suprise that Jim starts to become notorious for running away from jobs.
He gets a gig with the Yucker Brothers, which once again starts out well, but then Jim gets into a barroom brawl with a Danish guy over the Patna affair and has to skip town yet again. You'd think that would teach him a lesson, right?
Alas, not so much. When Marlow gets him another job with a dude named De Jongh, Jim promptly quits that one, too.
At his wits' end, Marlow decides to discuss Jim with a friend of his, a German merchant and naturalist named Stein.
