Mrs. Loftus notices that Huck is pretending to be a girl after giving him just about all of the information he's been fishing for. When she finally figures it all out, Huck is once again quick on his feet and cleverly pretends to be an escaped apprentice hiding in women's clothes to avoid detection.
