The Letters Of Mark Twain (complete) - FOREWORD

Nowhere is the human being more truly revealed than in his letters. Notin literary letters--prepared with care, and the thought of possible publication--but in those letters wrought out of the press of circumstances, and with no idea of print in mind. A collection of such documents, written by one whose life has become of interest to mankind at large, has a value quite aside from literature, in that it reflects in some degree at least the soul of the writer.

The letters of Mark Twain are peculiarly of the revealing sort. He was a man of few restraints and of no affectations. In his correspondence, as in his talk, he spoke what was in his mind, untrammeled by literary conventions.

Necessarily such a collection does not constitute a detailed life story, but is supplementary to it. An extended biography of Mark Twain has already been published. His letters are here gathered for those who wish to pursue the subject somewhat more exhaustively from the strictly personal side. Selections from this correspondence were used in the biography mentioned. Most of these are here reprinted in the belief that an owner of the "Letters" will wish the collection to be reasonably complete.

Curious Republic Of Gondour And Other Whimsical Sketches - LAST WORDS OF GREAT MEN
(From the Buffalo Express, September 11, 1889.) Marshal Neil's last words were: "L'armee fran-caise!" (The French army.)--Exchange.What a sad thing it is to see a man close a grand career with aplagiarism in his mouth. Napoleon's last words were: "Tete d'armee."(Head of the army.) Neither of those remarks amounts to anything as"last words," and reflect little credit upon the utterers.A distinguished man should be as particular about his last words as he isabout his last breath. He should write them out on a slip of paper andtake the judgment of
