This chapter concludes the major part of Melville's narrative.  

We left off at the end of chapter 2 with the shaving scene. Delano has left Cereno to confer with his slave Babo. Delano is surprised t see Babo running after him with a cut on his face. He has been cut by his master Benito Cereno, in retaliation for Babo having accidentally cut him during shaving.

Next up will be a quick summary and a closer look at this chapter. That will be followed by the finale of Benito Cereno.
