In the Beginning

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

YOU don't know about me without you have read a

book by the name of The Adventures of Tom

Sawyer; but that ain't no matter. That book was

made by Mr. Mark Twain, and he told the truth,

mainly. There was things which he stretched, but

mainly he told the truth. That is nothing.

The story begins in a little Missouri town of Langlem

along the Mississippi River. Where Huck has been sent

to be civilized by his aunts Polly and Mary.

I never seen anybody but lied one time or another, without it

was Aunt Polly, or the widow, or maybe Mary. Aunt

Polly -- Tom's Aunt Polly, she is -- and Mary, and

the Widow Douglas is all told about in that book,

which is mostly a true book, with some stretchers, as

I said before.

Now the way that the book winds up is this: Tom

and me found the money that the robbers hid in the

cave, and it made us rich. We got six thousand dollars

apiece -- all gold. It was an awful sight of money

when it was piled up. Well, Judge Thatcher he took

it and put it out at interest, and it fetched us a dollar

a day apiece all the year round -- more than a body

could tell what to do with.

The Widow Douglas she took me for her son, and allowed she would sivilize

me; but it was rough living in the house all the time,

considering how dismal regular and decent the widow

was in all her ways; and so when I couldn't stand it

no longer I lit out.

I got into my old rags and my

sugar-hogshead again, and was free and satisfied. But

Tom Sawyer he hunted me up and said he was going

to start a band of robbers, and I might join if I would

go back to the widow and be respectable. So I went

back.
