Why does Huck's conscience bother him as they approach what they think is Cairo?
Huck's conscience bothers him because of what he thinks he's done with Jim/to Miss Watson. To be specific, he's fretting because he thinks he's stolen Jim, and is feeling guilty over what he and his society think is a crime.
