Jim tells Huck that the Hairball says his father has two angels, one black and one white, the black being bad and the white being good. The Hairball is uncertain which angel will win out. It appears that Huck is safe for the moment. Huck will have much happiness and sorrow in his life. He will marry a poor woman followed by a rich woman. The Hairball warns that Huck should stay away from water, since that is where he will die.
