Where in huck Finn does it reference "taking responsibility for your actions"?

I need to show a quote in Huck Finn from a paragraph, that references the same theme as "Taking responsibility for actions". In what chapter does "taking responsibility for your actions" come under. Where did Huck take responsibility for his actions?

"But mind, you said you wouldn' tell – you know you said you wouldn' tell, Huck."

"Well, I did. I said I wouldn't, and I'll stick to it. Honest INJUN, I will. People would call me a low-down Abolitionist and despise me for keeping mum – but that don't make no difference. I ain't a-going to tell, and I ain't a-going back there, anyways. So, now, le's know all about it." (Chapter 8 pg.52 and 53).

Although he enjoys making up tales, Huck places a great deal of value on keeping his word. In fact, it appears that keeping his word to Jim is more important to Huck than the fate of his own reputation, or abiding the law.
