"I know what you'll say. You'll say it's dirty low-down business; but what if it is?- I'm low down; and I'm agoing to steal him, and I want you to keep mum and not let on. Will you?" His eye lit up, and he says: "I'll help you steal him!" Well, I let go all holts then, like I was shot. It was the most astonishing speech I ever heard- and I'm bound to say Tom Sawyer fell, considerable, in my estimation. Only I couldn't believe it. Tom Sawyer a nigger stealer! "Oh, shucks," I says, "you're joking." "I ain't joking, either." "Well, then," I says, "joking or no joking, if you hear anything said about a runaway nigger, don't forget to remember that you don't know nothing about him, and I don't know nothing about him."
