Marlow finds a book about seamanship which is in good condition but has notes in it in a language Marlow doesn't know. Later, he will find the book belongs to a Russian who is staying at Kurtz' station. Marlow returns the book to the Russian, who is glad to have it back.This is the same man Marlow had heard the station manager and his uncle discuss killing earlier in the novel.
