The old Welshman retells the events of the night before to an anxious Huck. The old man and his sons had crept up to within fifteen feet of the villains before the old man let out a sneeze, breaking their silence. Soon thereafter, they fired away and the villains fired back ­ but their shots were inconsequential. The villains were able to escape (also leaving behind their burglar's tools), but a posse and the sheriff had been assembled to patrol the riverbanks and the woods. Because the wood was so dark the night before, no one was able to steal a good look at the villains, and the old Welshman asks Huck if he could see what the two men looked like.
