Page 31, Cape 1963 edition:
...Jim, waking up with the help of the soup and Miss Powell's beautiful omelette, found himself talking of his frist long voyages with his uncle, and how gradually his uncle had let him do more and more of the work of the ship, and of how at last he had given him the Goblin for his own, on condition that now and then, when his rheumatism let him, he might join her again and crew for her new skipper.
"Jolly good uncle," said Roger.
"He is," said Jim. "You see, I left Rugby last term, and had a bit of luck with a scholarship to Oxford, and he promised her to me if I did. Not much rheumatism about him either. That was only his joke. He's coming cruising next week."
