Chapter 30

  • Huck makes up a story to explain his running away so the duke and king won't think he was trying to betray them.
  • But how did the gold get into the coffin?
  • Naturally, the duke and the king turn on each other, each thinking that his partner was trying to make off with the cash.
  • The duke starts strangling the king, so the king "confesses" to stealing and hiding the cash.
  • Then they get drunk together and pass out in the raft's wigwam, with all forgotten and forgiven in a haze of booze.
  • Huck tells Jim the whole story.
