And so, take it all around, we made a good haul. When we was ready to shove off we was a quarter of a mile below the island, and it was pretty broad day; so I made Jim lay down in the canoe and cover up with the quilt, because if he set up people could tell he was a n***** a good ways off.

– Mark Twain

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Chapter 9. As they head off in a canoe, Huck tells Jim to lie down in the canoe and cover himself to avoid discovery. In the beginning of their journey Huck thinks of Jim as different than him.
