1 Huck scanned his own clothing forlornly.
2 But Sid had snatched his clothes and gone.
3 Huck began to pick up his scattered clothes.
4 Mary got your Sunday clothes ready, and everybody's been fretting about you.
5 Now these clothes suits me, and this bar'l suits me, and I ain't ever going to shake 'em any more.'

14 After breakfast they went whooping and prancing out on the bar, and chased each other round and round, shedding clothes as they went, until they were naked, and then continued the frolic far away up the shoal water of the bar, against the stiff current, which latter tripped their legs from under them from time to time and greatly increased the fun.
