In this chapter, you also clearly experience the dual personality of Long John Silver. The mere thought of the treasure brings out his "evil" side as he yells at Jim Hawkins and tries to make both men move quickly to the treasure. This is in sharp contrast to the loving, father like attitude that he has taken towards Jim in the previous few chapters. Once again, Jim's father has abandoned him.
