Jim's Plan

HUCKFN-MELX1Q

What is ironic about Jim's plan for his family once he gets free in Chapter 16?

Jim talked out loud all the time while I was talking to myself. He was saying how the first thing he would do when he got to a free State he would go to saving up money and never spend a single cent, and when he got enough he would buy his wife, which was owned on a farm close to where Miss Watson lived; and then they would both work to buy the two children, and if their master wouldn't sell them, they'd get an Ab'litionist to go and steal them.

A

That he plans to steal his own children

B

Than he plans to save money he would never spend

C

That he plans to buy his wife

D

A and C are both correct.

E

Nothing is ironic.
