  • It must a been close on to one o’clock when we got below theisland at last, and the raft did seem to go mighty slow. If a boat wasto come along we was going to take to the canoe and break for theIllinois shore; and it was well a boat didn’t come, for we hadn’t everthought to put the gun in the canoe, or a fishing-line, or anything to eat. We was in ruther too much of a sweat to think of so manythings. It warn’t good judgment to put everything on the raft(Twain 66)
  • We shot a water-fowl now and then that got up too early in the morning or didn’t go to bed early enough in the evening. Take it all round, we lived pretty high.(Twain 68)
  • The deck was high out here. We went sneaking down the slope of it to labboard, in the dark, towards the texas, feeling our way slow with our feet, and spreading our hands out to fend off the guys, for it was so dark we couldn’t see no sign of them. Pretty soon we struck the forward end of the skylight, and clumb on to it; and the next step fetched us in front of the captain’s door, (Twain 70)
  • I never see such a nigger. If he got a notion in his head once, there warn’t no getting it out again. He was the most down on Solomon of any nigger I ever see. (Twain 81)
  • I throwed the paddle down. I heard the whoop again; it was behindme yet, but in a different place; it kept coming, and kept changing itsplace, and I kept answering, till by and by it was in front of me again,and I knowed the current had swung the canoe’s head down-stream,and I was all right if that was Jim and not some other raftsman hollering.I couldn’t tell nothing about voices in a fog, for nothing don’tlook natural nor sound natural in a fog(Twain 85)
  • Jim looked at the trash, and then looked at me, and back at the trash again. He had got the dream fixed so strong in his head that he couldn’t seem to shake it loose and get the facts back into its place again right away. But when he did get the thing straightened around he looked at me steady without ever smiling,(Twain 89)
