Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

Jimmy Wells (Patrolman Wells) is a loyal and trustworthy friend. He was at "the appointed place," but couldn't bring himself to arrest his friend.

"Silky" Bob, might be considered a loyal friend too because he showed up "After Twenty Years" as well. The difference is the two paths that each took over their lives. Bob became a thief while Jimmy led a more honorable life.
