Eminence

Dear Reader,
My name is Huckleberry Finn and I am on the run. I
have begun to help a slave escape from his master. I also
am in a bit of trouble myself, having lied to everyone at
home about my death, having faked it and hiding out. I
dont know how to apologize to my friends, Miss Watson and
the Widow. What do you suggest I do? Is slavery really
wrong? How will I ever get away from my father if I go
home? Is what I did really wrong?
