Next Pap Finn teaches the evils of alcohol, this drunkard of a father abuses Huck and is only interested in him when money’s involved, for buying more booze of course. “Human beings can be awful cruel to one another” (254) sagaciously comments the surprisingly forgiving Huck about a pair of rapscallions is the next and most prominent moral, one you don’t have to dig for as much but is still a treasure all the same.
