Tom Kelly
The Adventures Of Huckleberry Finn

ďYou donít know about me, without you have read a book by the name of ďThe Adventures of Tom Sawyer,Ē but that ainít 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 ainí nothing. I never seen anybody but lied, one time or another, without it was Aunt Polly, or the widow, or maybr Mary. Aunt Polly-Tomís 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.Ē(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.
I reckon it was a warm November juís like any other, the 30th to be exact. But that ainít how Samís Pa spoke of it. He had to go makiín big, fancy speeches and things of that sort at the party. But after all that mublíin we had a purdy good time. As a matter of fact as I recall that day it was almost purífect. If it warnít for me drunk Pa gettin arrested by the Sheriff that morn, it wouddaí been real purífect. Course I reckon a boyís gota have a good time at his best friendís bertíday party.
I was at Samís house. Course I warnít 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 Ďtire family must da been at dat house, canít 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 donít give me much thought cause me bein uneducated and havin a Pa like I do an all. 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).
Samís family hadínt 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 dollars. Ya, I was rich ever since Tom and I had gotten them bandits. Tell ya the truth, money didínt really mean much to me anyways cause I liked livin simple an all. But some people spend all their time day dreamin bout the stuff. Samís Pa 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 ďmostĒ in sted of all weekdays, well Sam didínt care for his schoolin much and often played hooky (Paine 14). Ya see, cause of Samís funny personality he was often switched. Olíe Mrs. Elizabeth Horr could never forget that mamís name. Ya see dat was Samís teacher, he didínt think of her as that though. In Samís mind Mrs. Elizabeth was a jail keeper (Eaton 27). So we use ta go in sit at the port. Hannibal, Mississippi was where we lived, an it was a big river town (Encarta 1994). Sam loved them steam boats, he could sit dare an look it em all day, and he usually did. Course me bein his best of friends was always there wit em, didínt care for em much myself so Sam would always make up stories, and adventures to says we was doin, when all we was really doin was lookin at boats, and missin school of
