The Lord is my shepard, there is nothing I shall want
Poor lads! they have suffered a poor relapse-like me
Tom decided to join the order of Cadets of Temperance. He promised to abstain from smoking, chewing, and profanity. Tom having a desire to drink and swear. Fourth of July came around he gave up before he had worn his shackles over forty-eight hours. Judge Frazer fixed his hopes but was apparently on his deathbed.
Tom fell ill to the measles for two weeks. During this time, the boys in town began to become more religious. There was a "revival" in them and everybody "got religion". Tom got up from his feet and went into town hoping to see one sinful face. He found Joe Harper studying a Testament, Ben Rogers visiting the poor. But above all, Huck Finn saying a Scriptural quotation!!
The doctors came back and said Tom had relapse. Tom felt the three weeks were an entire age. He remembered how lonely he was. He went down the street and found Joe Harper and Huck Finn eating a stolen melon.
