The widow Douglas and Miss Watson are sisters in the novel. The Widow Douglas adopts Huck, and tries to reform him. the Widow tries to get him to go to school and learn the bible, but is really good and sweet to him. She has a soft heart. Miss Watson is Jim's owner. She is severe, and is harsh with Huck's resistance to her demands.
