It is in connection with Jim, who is the moral touchstone of everything else in the book. Jim is a solid and reliable buoy of morality in a society of less than solid morality. Jim listens to Huck with interest where others would mock, scold or berate him. On the raft Jim defines for Huck the meaning of friendship, loyalty, and responsibility. When Huck apologizes to Jim he accepts him as his friend, and shows that he accepts his moral values. It is Huck's friendship with Jim that forms his morals.
