“But now he realized that people did not speak the same again. Until then he had heard talk about the usual dialect of the city, he understands. Now, inexplicably, mouths seemed to swell up, stumbled, caming out different words, sound rough and shapeless. As if by remote wells of the city was coming an echo ugly and black. The voice of the infamous slums suddenly relived old, charged with crimes? He was among strangers in a land distant and inexplicable to him ferocious.”
