One day, after an old shipmate named Black Dog manages to track down the captain, he gets so worked up that he has a stroke. The captain starts hallucinating and raving about his old life as a pirate.

Blandly, to stay behind and send another ship after them in August if Mr. Blandly sees no signs of them before then. Jim is having the time of his life, even though he has to work hard. But things take a bad turn one night when Jim climbs down into an apple barrel on deck to get the last piece of fruit and finds himself falling asleep in the dark space.

Captain Smollett offers them all a round of drinks and sends two-thirds of the crew onto the island to stretch their legs.

Jim, meanwhile, has slipped ashore with the pirates and gone off exploring on his own.

So he slips into the fort to tell them what he has discovered about Ben Gunn. After a battle with the pirates, Jim sees Doctor Livesey head into the forest to consult with Ben Gunn.
Jim hatches his own plan: Jim finds the little boat and suddenly gets another great idea: Jim rows out to the ship, cuts the line attaching it to its anchor, and watches it get caught in the current. Jim eventually manages to get on board the Hispaniola again.
Jim climbs down from the ship, wades to shore, and climbs back up to the fort. Long John Silver prevents the other pirates from killing Jim. Long John Silver is playing a complicated game: Long John Silver is sure the pirates are going to rise up against him if he shows his confusion or any sign of weakness.
Doctor Livesey comes by the fort as part of their truce and treats the injured and sick pirates. Jim manages to get word to him that Long John Silver seems to be flipping sides and that Jim has beached the Hispaniola on the north end of the island.
