The letter is ironic because Huck is admitting to having stolen Jim—but he's doing so after Miss Watson has already freed Jim. He "stole" a free man, and has been guilty over taking "property" that wasn't.

As far as the witness, Huck suggests witnesses to prove that the King and Duke aren't really who they say they are, so he can keep them from bilking the family in their time of mourning.
