The remaining four passengers sat on for a while, until a solemn-looking man in the corner, who, from his dress and general appearance, seemed to belong to the undertaker class, said it put him in mind of dead baby; and the other three passengers tried to get out of the door at the same time, and hurt themselves.

The above extract is from from Jerome K. Jerome's novel Three Men in a boat. This incident describes the cheese episode. Kindly tell me the meaning of the italicized phrase.

I was asked to transform a complex sentence into compound sentence. The question was 'come when you like.'

I transformed it into 'pick up the time of your choice and you can come then.'

Kindly tell me if what I did is correct or not.

Kindly tell me who has been referred to as 'white chief' and 'Big chief' in Chief Seattle's speech 1854.

"The white chief says that Big Chief at Washington sends us greetings of friendship and goodwill. This is kind of him for we know he has little need of our friendship in return."
