The king and Duke steal the money by pretending to be the brother of, Peter Wilkes, who has died. Huck steals the money from the mattress because he wants it to go to the rightful owners, the nieces. Huck's conscience doesn't bother him because he believes he is lying for a good cause. The King and Duke don't speak very well in their English accents and their handwriting doesn't match the real Wilkes brothers' handwriting and that is what gives them away. Huck is upset when Jim is sold because he is his friend. It is important when Huck says "all right then, I'll go to hell." (210) because Huck decides Jim is his friend and he wants to help his friend despite the consequences.
Huck assumes Tom's identity because Mrs. Phelps mistakes him for Tom."You don't look as much like your mother as I reckoned you would; but law sakes, I don't care for that...Children, it's your cousin Tom!—tell him howdy." He goes along with it to rescue Jim. Tom pretends to be his brother Sid, and complicates the situation with Jim. Huck's plan to rescue Jim is simple, while Tom's is complicated. hen Tom arrives Huck lets him take charge. Tom's plan is cruel because he lets Jim think he is not free. He lets Jim think he is a runaway slave. What we learn about Tom is that when he decides to do something, there is no changing his mind. And he is selfish and does not think about how his actions will affect others.
Huck seems superior to Tom because Tom's world is juvenile and full of pranks and dreams. Huck's world is an adult one. He tries to choose right from wrong and takes responsibility for his actions. Jim is set free in Miss Watson's will. Tom is ready for another adventure, but will likely go home with Aunt Polly. Huck is also ready for another adventure, especially since Aunt Sally wants to civilize him. "But I reckon I got to light out for the Territory ahead of the rest, because Aunt Sally she’s going to adopt me and civilize me and I can’t stand it. I been there before." Tom ends up going home with Aunt Polly
