Evidence

"He [Joseph Conrad] would read to me for long periods and make birds and other things out of sheets of paper which he folded with great dexterity. [...] His choice of books always met with my approval; I believe he must have read them all during his youth and enjoyed re-reading them almost as much as I enjoyed listening. Among them were Charles Kingsley"s ""Greek Heroes"", Fennimore [sic] Cooper"s ""The Last of the Mohicans"", ""[The] Deerslayer"", ""The Pathfinder"" and Captain Marryat"s ""Peter Simple"", ""[Mr] Midshipman Easy"",etc.[...] Some of these volumes [...] are still on my bookshelves here with his signature inside the cover."

Notes
This experience can be dated to the period during which Borys was recovering from whooping cough and rheumatic fever. See also Joseph Conrad's essay 'Tales of the Seas-1898' in 'Notes on Life and Letters4 (Dent,1921) pp.37-39 in which familiarity with a range of Marryat's characters is cleary apparent, as well as with those in the maritime fiction of Fenimore Cooper.
