1 It was getting gray daylight now.
2 But it was too dark to see yet, so we made the canoe fast and set in her to wait for daylight.
3 But towards daylight we got it all settled satisfactory, and concluded to drop crabapples and p'simmons.
4 We passed another town before daylight, and I was going out again; but it was high ground, so I didn't go.
5 We could see saw-logs go by in the daylight sometimes, but we let them go; we didn't show ourselves in daylight.
6 I heard one man say it was nearly three o'clock, and he hoped daylight wouldn't wait more than about a week longer.
7 Another night when we was up at the head of the island, just before daylight, here comes a frame-house down, on the west side.
8 Mornings before daylight I slipped into cornfields and borrowed a watermelon, or a mushmelon, or a punkin, or some new corn, or things of that kind.
9 Then it was most daylight and everybody went to bed, and I went to bed with Buck, and when I waked up in the morning, drat it all, I had forgot what my name was.
10 Next we slid into the river and had a swim, so as to freshen up and cool off; then we set down on the sandy bottom where the water was about knee deep, and watched the daylight come.
11 So then we laid in with Jim the second night, and tore up the sheet all in little strings and twisted them together, and long before daylight we had a lovely rope that you could a hung a person with.
12 So there I had to stick plumb until daylight this morning; and I never see a nigger that was a better nuss or faithfuller, and yet he was risking his freedom to do it, and was all tired out, too, and I see plain enough he'd been worked main hard lately.
13 There was a little one-horse town about three mile down the bend, and after dinner the duke said he had ciphered out his idea about how to run in daylight without it being dangersome for Jim; so he allowed he would go down to the town and fix that thing.
14 Then I struck up the road, and when I passed the mill I see a sign on it, "Phelps's Sawmill," and when I come to the farm-houses, two or three hundred yards further along, I kept my eyes peeled, but didn't see nobody around, though it was good daylight now.
