CHAPTER XXXI.

WE dasn't stop again at any town for days and...

...and smelt around to see if
anybody had got any wind of the Royal Nonesuch there...

Page 2

...two mile below here. He's a runaway
nigger, and they've got him. Was you...

Page 3

...mad and disgusted at his rascality and ungratefulness for
leaving her, and so she'd sell him...

Page 4

...to give up sin, but away inside of me I was
holding on to the biggest...

Page 5

...ever had in the world, and the ONLY one he's got
now; and then I happened...

Page 6

...wanted to get the lay of the
land. According to my plan, I was going to...

Page 7

...last night and found
the raft gone, we said, 'That little rascal has stole our raft...

Page 8

...wouldn't trust me; he wanted to make sure of having me out of the
way the...

Page 9

...makes a body wish
HE was dead, too, and done with it all.

Phelps' was one of...

...up towards me, a-barking and howling; and more a-coming; you
could see them sailing over fences...

Page 11

...you?--boat
get aground?"

"Yes'm--she--"

"Don't say yes'm--say Aunt Sally. Where'd she get aground?"

I didn't rightly know what...

Page 12

...time; I wanted to get them out to one side and pump them
a little, and...

Page 13

...mind
acknowledging 't I'm right down scared. But there's no hope that he's
come; for he...

Page 14

...waylay him. So I told the folks I reckoned I would go up to
the...

Page 15

...you needn't let on to know me at first."

I says:

"All right; but wait a minute....

Page 16

...she see it through the window, because it was only about fifty
yards, and says:

"Why, there's...

Page 17

...on, and on, making up stuff about Hicksville and
everybody in it he could invent, and...

Page 18

...she'd like me to kiss her, sir?"

"Why, no; I--I--well, no, I b'lieve I didn't."

Then he...

...time; but it warn't no use, they didn't happen to say
nothing about any runaway nigger,...

Page 20

...poor old king was in the middle of
his cavortings on the stage; then somebody give...

Page 21

...knowed very well where the right plan
was going to come from. Pretty soon Tom...

Page 22

...and tell him so; and so be his true
friend, and let him quit the thing...

Page 23

...it and prized out one of the staples. The chain fell down,
and we opened...

Page 24

...too. Does you want to go en look at
'im?"

"Yes."

I hunched Tom, and whispers:

"You going,...

Page 25

...it
out en tell um 'bout it, dey doan' b'lieve you."

Tom give him a dime, and...

Page 26

...Why, drat it, Huck, it's the stupidest
arrangement I ever see. You got to invent ALL...

Page 27

...we'll dig one."

I says:

"What do we want of a moat when we're going to snake...

Page 28

...into trouble
with Aunt Sally, just as sure as you're born. Now, the way I...

Page 29

...HE'S got to do is
to write on the plate and throw it out. You...

...chance to hog a watermelon.

Well, as I was saying, we waited that morning till everybody...
