With the help of a local doctor and lord, the three round up a crew and a ship to sail to the hidden treasure on the map. Little did they know, the crew they hired had their own plans to steal the map and thus the treasure. Throughout the novel, Stevenson argues that, “greed can destroy any relationship, no matter how strong,” through his use of language and tone, as well as cultural, historical, and social lenses. Many phrases used within the novel suggest that the speaker is hiding something from the other characters, or is to. When Jim, the Doctor Livesey, and the squire examine the map, the squire automatically edmands that they go searching for it before anyone else finds the map, and refuses to tell anyone, saying, “‘Livesey,’ said the squire, ‘you will give up this wretched practice at once.

Second, he used the information he gathered, often unconstitutionally, to blackmail people, especially government officials, up to and including presidents. Third, he dipped into FBI funds for his personal use, and when he had special agents, on government time, write books for him, he personally pocketed the royalties. In many ways he was an insecure and petty man who envied other people who got the limelight.
