There are some new characters in Huck Finn that I find very interesting, and I want you to know some stuff about these characters. First of all, the most important thing that happens in these chapters is when Jim gets sold by the King and Duke to the Phelps family. That forces Huck to try to rescue Jim, to help aid him on his journey to the north of the country of the United States of America. Some new characters we meet are: Silas Phelps, and his wife. Silas is a local preacher for the town, and his wife is a stay at home mom also the family owns several other slaves other than Jim. There are some things that we learn about his wife, but on thing in particular is very cold hearted. They had a fire at their family farm and she said that nobody was killed in the fire, but ultimately a couple of their slaves burned to death in that fire. That is a horrible way to die, and Mrs. Phelps did not even acknowledge there death in the fire. That shows that she is cold hearted when it comes to the slaves, and also shows that she is racist. I think Huck is eventually going to break out Jim, and they will be on their merry way on their journey to the north in the United States of America.
