In the beginning of the story you see that Sonny and his brother were not keeping close at all. In the second paragraph on pg 554, the brother says, “He became real to me again.” He’s basically saying that Sonny didn’t really exist to him anymore, until he read about him getting arrested in the article. He didn’t understand what was going on with his younger brother. He’s never even talked to him about what was going on with him to try to understand. When he talked to the past friend of Sonny’s, that’s where he starts to see what’s been going on with his brother, because of the things this guy is told him.

He is waiting for his college-educated son (William Canfield Jr.) who he (William Canfield Sr.) has never seen since he (William Canfield Jr.) was a baby.

He wanted to test his theory of the earth's magnetism at the north pole, and was on a ship traveling there. He seemed to be an intellectual, and knowledgeable person, but he felt alone and isolated because the only people he was with were the crewmen on the boat, and they did not share his passion for exploration. Even though he was physically with people, he didn't have any friends to share his dreams and goals with. His sister was the only person who he could share this with but she was hundreds of miles away from him. In the letters, we find out that Walton really doesn’t have any friends but he longs for one.
