You don’t know about me without you have read a book by the name of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer;
but that ain’t no matter. That book was made by Mr. Mark Twain, and he told the truth, mainly. There was
things which he stretched, but mainly he told the truth. That is nothing. I never seen anybody but lied one
time or another, without it was Aunt Polly, or the widow, or maybe Mary. Aunt Polly — Tom’s Aunt Polly, she
is — and Mary, and the Widow Douglas is all told about in that book, which is mostly a true book, with some
stretchers, as I said before. – Opening to Huck Finn
