Roxy is revealing the truth to Tom about his true heritage. Tom's fate was supposed to be that of a slave child.

"I means dis—en it's de Lord's truth. You ain't no more kin to ole Marse Driscoll den I is! dat's what I means!" and her eyes flamed with triumph."

Twain is comparing Roxy to one of the fate sisters in Greek Mythology.
