NOTES ON HUCKLEBERRY FINN CHAPTER 1 Huck Finn reminds the readers that he has already appeared in a book about Tom Sawyer called The Adventures of Tom Sawyer This 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 He reminds us that at the end of that book he and Tom had found six thousand dollars apiece Since then the Widow Douglas has been trying to civilize Huck and judge Thatcher has invested the money for him bringing a dollar a day in interest The widows sister Miss Watson also lives in the house and she is forever picking at Huck trying to make him do things her way Unlike the Widow Douglas who is kind and patient with Huck Miss Watson is sharp and nagging Her insistent interference makes Huck resent home life and its restraints They wont even let him smoke Huck is so disgusted with home life that he accidentally kills a spider and he knows that this act is bound to bring bad luck to him However as he sits and smokes he hears Tom Sawyers secret call Huck puts out the light slides to the ground and finds Tom waiting for him among the treesCHAPTERS 2 and 3As Huck joins Tom Sawyer in the garden he accidentally trips over a root and alerts Miss Watsons slave Jim to the fact that something unusual is happening Jim sits down on the ground between Tom and Huck and he would have discovered them if he had not gone to sleep Tom then plays a trick on Jim -a trick which multiplies in size as Jim tells the story after he awakes With each telling the story becomes more fanciful until Jim becomes the most envied Negro in the village Tom and Huck meet some other boys and Tom wants to organize a band of robbers
