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 were things which he streched,
but mainly he told the truth.
That ain' nothing.
I never seen anybody but lied,
one time or another, without it was Aunt Polly, or the widow, or maybr Mary.
Polly-Tom's Aunt Polly, she is-and Mary, and the Widow Douglas, is all told bout in
that book-which is mostly a true book; with some, as I said before."(Twain 1)
Any way I am here to tell you somethings bout this man that has write all
these things bout our adventures.
So listen an maybe you might even learn a little
something bout this man.
Now let me think.
...oh ya, now I recall it.
reckon it was a warm November ju's like any other,
the 30th to be exact.
But that ain't how Sam's Pa spoke of it.
He had to go maki'n big, fancy speeches
and things of that sort at the party.
But after all that mubl'in we had a purdy
As a matter of fact as I recall that day it was almost pur'fect.
warn't for me drunk Pa gettin arrested by the Sheriff that morn, it woudda'
Course I reckon a boy's gota have a good time at his best friend's
I was at Sam's house.
Course I warn't de only one dare.
His Pa, Judge
Clemens and Ma, Miss Jane Lampton, till she married of course,
was dare and I
reckon his whole 'tire family must da been at dat house, can't barely remember it
was only his fourth birthday back in 1839 (Howard 1).
Ya, me and Sam been friends
ever since he moved here, best friends too, he was born an lived in Florida,
Missouri prior to now.
He moved here at the start of this year.
See lots of
people don't give me much thought cause me bein uneducated and havin a Pa like I do
That all changed though, Sam was the type dat even liked the niggers, so I
be surprised if he thought of me differently than any other (Paine 4).
Sam's family had'nt got that much money either but his Pa sure was one of
them educated types.
He was a lawyer and a judge and people looked up to him for
jus dat (Howard 5).
Actually, speakin of money I had some myself, bout 6,000
I was rich ever since Tom and I had gotten them bandits.
the truth, money did'nt really mean much to me anyways cause I liked livin simple
But some people spend all their time day dreamin bout the stuff.
and Sam certainly had somethin in common then cause Judge Clemens is always thinkin
of all these ways to be prosper.
And Sam jus day dream bout what ever he could
think of (Howard 11).
Guess I would do the same if I was forced to sit in a school
house some days myself.
Now your probably thinkin why I said "most" in sted of all
weekdays, well Sam did'nt care for his schoolin much and often played hooky (Paine
Ya see, cause of Sam's funny personality he was often switched.
Elizabeth Horr could never forget that mam's name.
