And if the personal pronoun "I" means something other than that in your language then John Clark does not care if that fellow by the name of "I" survives or not. And neither probabilities nor the accuracy of predictions of what city will be seen nor the content of diaries would play any part in my decision to say "yes". None whatsoever.
