When Robinson returns to England, the only remaining members of his family are his two sisters and two nephews. He takes care of the nephews and raises one as a gentleman, while the other becomes a sailor. The two young nephews represent the two paths of life Robinson himself had a choice between in his youth: a comfortable gentlemanly life in England or an adventurous life at sea. At the end of the novel, Robinson joins his sailor nephew on a trading voyage.
