Huck Finn Gets a Scolding from Miss Watson

Huck Finn Gets a Scolding from Miss Watson Fiction Nineteenth Century Life Visual Arts

After sneaking in and out of his bedroom window, so he could play most of the night with Tom Sawyer and his other pals, Huck Finn returns home. His new clothes are dirty, and Miss Watson scolds him for misbehaving.

This image, by E.W. Kemble, appears in the third chapter of the first edition of Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Part 1). It illustrates these words of the story (describing Miss Watson’s attempt to discipline Huck):

WELL, I got a good going-over in the morning from old Miss Watson on account of my clothes; but the widow she didn't scold, but only cleaned off the grease and clay, and looked so sorry that I thought I would behave awhile if I could.

With Huck, those efforts to behave usually didn’t last very long!
