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!
Dick runs into Tommy in Munich and Tommy comments that Dick doesn’t look well. Dick doesn’t feel up for conversing with him.
Tommy was with a prince he’d helped escape from Russia. Tommy also informs Dick that he read in the paper that Abe was "beaten to death" in a "speakeasy" (a place where liquor was sold during prohibition) in New York City. Dick is shocked.
He goes back to his hotel and sleeps. When he wakes a parade of veterans are passing by his window, going to honor the graves of their dead.
He feels so sad for Abe’s death and for his lost youth.
