Mr. Thipps

“Mr. Alfred Thipps was a small, nervous man, whose flaxen hair was beginning to abandon the unequal struggle with destiny. One might say that his only really marked feature was a large bruise over the left eyebrow, which gave him a faintly dissipated air incongruous wight he rest of his appearance” (4).


This was the first thing that stood out to me as I read because it made me wonder why Thipps had a bruise int her first place…is he guilty? Why is he so nervous?
