It's on page 389 of Random House's 1996 _Adventures of Huckleberry Finn:
The Only Comprehensive Edition_. In the Introduction and Addendum, Justin
Kaplan and Vic Doyno comment on the changes. For more ideas on revision,
see Doyno's 1991 _Writing Huck Finn: Mark Twain's Creative Process_.
Also Doyno has plans for _Beginning to Write _Huck Finn__.
