Long John Silver takes matters into his own hands, and arranges for his crew to spirit the children away to Polly Purity's Christmas party, while holding Miss Willoughby at gunpoint. Long John learns that Miss Willoughby had a very stern upbringing herself and convinces her that fun and games must be part of a child's upbringing. He convinces her to join the merrymakers.
