He rents a room at the inn, pays Jim's mother and warns Jim to keep a look out for him, especially of a sea-fearing man with one leg! Few months later, Bill is still staying at the inn but he didn't pay for the stay of the last months; he is drinking a lot of rum and Doctor Livesey, a family-friend of Jim's father, who's dead, has already gave him an advertisement : he must stop drinking do much and he must calm down.
