Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Chapter 29 Quotes

How we cite the quotes:
(Chapter.Paragraph)

"Set down, my boy; I wouldn't strain myself if I was you. I reckon you ain't used to lying, it don't seem to come handy; what you want is practice. You do it pretty awkward. (29.33)

Lawyer Levi Bell sees right through Huck. Huck might think he's a seasoned deceiver, but he's really just a nice kid. (To be fair, he's trying to convince a doctor and lawyer that he's from England. That's a little like you trying to convince NASA that you came from Mars.)
