""Now," says the duke,"after to-night we can run in the daytime if we want
to. Whenever we can see anybody coming we can tie Jim hand and foot
with a rope, and lay him in the wigwam and show this handbill and say we

able to travel in the daytime without any
worry of having Jim captured. However,
their plan does have some flaws. Because
the reward for capturing Jim is two
hundred dollars, others might try to
capture him and take him to authorities
to claim the prize. Even though the other
parts of his plan are thought out, there
might be trouble with people trying to
steal Jim.

not knowing how to speak French.
He comes up with the excuse that
he had forgotten the language after
living in the country for a while. Jim
still believes that he is the duke,
and falls for all of his lies.

This quote is from Boggs once he
is passing by Huck. After all the

he had seemed like a dangerous

him, but another man tells him that
he's only like that when he's drunk.

Themes from chapters 20-22
•Religion:
In chapter 20, When Huck attends the meeting in the
woods, he noticed a preacher start reading hymns, but then him and the
crowd start screaming, some starting to shout and cry, in the name of
God. This is Twain's way of showing how prayers can be performed in
many ways, not just the ways Huck was taught with the widow and miss
Watson.
• Facing Reality of situations: In chapter 22, Twain proves that
people must be realistic when they are plotting a task. A mob of people
were ready to lynch Sherburn once he had killed Boggs, and their only plan
was storming his house and create chaos. Once Sherburn stepped out, he
started ridiculing the crowd of how badly they planned their attack, and
made them face the reality of the situation.
Question
s
•What do you think Huck thought of the
camp-meeting that was held in the woods?
Did it change his views on religion?
•Do you think the Dukes plan of traveling
during the day will work? What do you think
will happen if he is caught lying about his
plan?
