Silas Phelps is the owner of a plantation in Pikesville far down the Mississippi River from St. Petersburg, where Huck Finn starts his adventure. Huck hears that Jim has been exposed as a runaway slave by the Duke and King, and detained at Phelps' plantation. Huck goes there and is assumed by the Phelps family to be a certain "Tom", who turns out to be none other than Tom Sawyer, cousin of Sally Phelps. Tom had been expected; he comes along not long after, and assumes the identity of Sid himself, to maintain the narrative.
