Delano observes that the  San Dominick's  only long-boat, which is unseaworthy, serves as a den for  a black family. Delano questions Don Benito about the absence of boats. Benito replies that they  were destroyed in bad weather. A messenger boy interrupts, announcing that it is twelve thirty and  reminding Cereno to retire to the cuddy. While Babo shaves his master, who is draped with the flag  of Spain, Delano contemplates what he perceives as Babo's ease with the jobs of valet and  hairdresser. As he admits that had anyone but Don Benito told him about the ship's disastrous  voyage, he would have disbelieved him, the Spaniard shudders, and Babo draws blood under  Cereno's throat. The shaving draws to a close; Delano steps discreetly toward the main-mast, then  hears a noise near the cuddy. He turns to find Babo, his cheek bleeding, wondering when his master

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
