Pag. 29) In this segment of the novel he is talking about of the conditions in which the slaves were and how he feel a little bit of mercy for them, > (Joseph Conrad. (1902). the heart of darkness.

While they continue there is a part on the book in which the whole crew feel like a threat to them, when they see some natives near the place where they are they see like a fog and start to get worried about it, Marlow describe this scene like a warning not as a threat, maybe a warning to not continuing beyond the fog because even though the fog the crew can hear the natives near that place
