Chapters 23-25:

In this section we see Huck make two major realizations. The first is that he notices how Jim loves his family as much as a white man, and he continues to see Jim as more than just a slave, as well as shine light on the ideas of slavery in general. Secondly, we see his repulsion at the continued scams of the 'king and duke'. Huck's sense of right and wrong has grown significantly as they travel down the river.

Very good points Kelley. You are getting good at picking out the characters evolutation and growth. I agree with you. I do think the nieces were pretty stupid giving the money to the con artists.

Huck is becoming a strong character.

Twain continues to paint the townspeople as deserving of their fate when interacting with the two 'royals'. Huck is becoming uncomfortable with the depths the two will go to scam folks. He and Jim had a much simpler way of living before these two came into the picture and took only what they needed, mostly trying to salvage sruff that came down the river.
I am looking forward to the two royals moving out or our story.
I don't know why, but it caught me off gaurd to think Jim would beat his daughter. I guess I figured being a slave and being ill used himself and watching his daughter be ill used, most likely that he wuld not have added more to her miseru
