The entire figure of the ocean-going ship occupied two facing pages, 56 and 57. The engine shown above occupied the lower right portion of the figure, entirely on page 57. Caption material was placed at various points on the pages. The operative ones for the engine are:
Captain Salty lets the engineer in the engine room know when he wants the ship to go fast -or go slow -or stop. The engine turns the propeller. This makes the ship move through the water.
The context includes a cutaway drawing of the entire ship, full of mice and rabbit passengers and crew, plus one hard-to-find worm, wearing his shoe.
