    In Chapter 20, the King and Huck go to a camp-meeting for a church revival.  After listening to some rambunctious preaching, the King pretends to be a pirate who has come back home to recruit new members.  Saying he is now reformed, the King tells the crowd that despite being robbed the night before he plans to go back and reform the rest of his pirate brethren.  The congregation takes pity on the King and allow him to gather a collection.  The crowd makes a spectacle of the charity, and the King walks away with eight-seven dollars and seventy-five cents.
