Once they go outside, Silver tells Jim to move slowly because he is wary that the other pirates might attack them. Silver then reveals why he is letting the doctor talk with Jim. He puts his own case before the doctor, complete with a trembling voice. He tells how he saved Jim's life, admits that he is afraid of hanging, and asks the doctor to put in a good word for him. After that, he steps out of hearing so Jim and Livesey can talk alone.
