After the Duke and Dauphin have different versions of the tattoo on the dead man, the lawyer sends the mob out to exhume the body. When the $6000 in gold is discovered there is uproar. During the excitement Huck is able to slip away. He finds a canoe and paddles out to the raft where Joe awaits. Unfortunately the Duke and the Dauphin make it to the raft soon after.
