That rascal, Tom Sawyer, is having quite a time! In just the last few months, he's gotten engaged to the new girl in town, witnessed a murder, stayed in a haunted house, found buried treasure, gotten lost in a cave, watched his own funeral, and had many other adventures. But that's Tom, for you - a mix of childish innocence and mischief. "There were some that believed he would be President, yet, if he escaped hanging."
