Lord Jim Chapter 44 Summary

  • Before dawn, Brown and his group head downriver. Elsewhere, a kind but completely oblivious Jim offers to send them some food.
  • Of course Brown is too busy being led down an alternate channel by Cornelius.
  • Meanwhile Tamb' Itam arrives at Dain Waris' camp and relays the message from Jim.
  • No sooner has Dain Waris put on Jim's ring than Brown's army attacks. Dain Waris is caught completely off guard, and he is killed in the battle.
  • An injured Tamb' Itam manages to get away, and while he is splitting, he sees Cornelius trying to do the exact same thing. He realizes what our resident traitor has done, so he charges Cornelius and kills the punk.
