It is difficult to say which chapter you mean but I think you are referring to chapter 29. Huck realizes at that moment that Injun Joe's dangerous "revenge" job is to seek harm on the Widow Douglas. Injun Joe proceeds to describe to the Spaniard how the widow's late husband had ordered him to be horsewhipped "like a nigger" in front of the jail a long time ago; as revenge, Joe intends on "slit[ting] her nostrils" and "notch[ing] her ears like a sow!"

You need to submit each of your other questions one at a time. Thanks!
