1 Tom Sawyer knew as much of the cave as any one.
2 The physicians were all at the cave, so the Widow Douglas came and took charge of the patient.
3 When the cave door was unlocked, a sorrowful sight presented itself in the dim twilight of the place.
4 Judge Thatcher sent messages of hope and encouragement from the cave, but they conveyed no real cheer.
5 Three days and nights of toil and hunger in the cave were not to be shaken off at once, as Tom and Becky soon discovered.
6 The Judge and some friends set Tom to talking, and some one asked him ironically if he wouldn't like to go to the cave again.
7 Still drifting along and talking, they scarcely noticed that they were now in a part of the cave whose walls were not frescoed.
8 It would be complete, however, as soon as the messenger dispatched with the great news to the cave should get the word to her husband.
9 They wound this way and that, far down into the secret depths of the cave, made another mark, and branched off in search of novelties to tell the upper world about.
