The basic goodness of the two boys is revealed in their concern about the fate of Muff Potter. When  they recall all of the little things that Muff has done for them, their consciences are aroused, and they  conclude that actually Muff is a simple, harmless person who would never hurt anyone. Yet in spite  of their consciences, they know that if they tell, they will both be dead within a short period of time.  Thus weighing everything, they again renew the pledge never to tell. The entire trial is centered upon Tom's reactions; Huck does not even attend the trial, but rather, he  waits outside the courtroom. During Muff Potter's time in jail and throughout much of the trial, all the  evidence seems to prove Muff Potter's guilt, and, until the last day of the trial, Tom's chief concern is  for his own safety.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
