Huck needs information from the woman about the status of Jim and himself. He wants to know what the town thinks has happened to them. He can't go as a male because this would most certainly scare her and give his identity away as well.

Huck lets on to his gender by,

-Huck does a poor job of threading a needle.

-throws a piece of lead at a rat

-Huck is nervous and fidgety
