February – At 21 Fifth Ave., N.Y. Sam wrote to Edward E. Clarke. “DEAR SIR,—I have found the original manuscript and with great pleasure I transmit it herewith, also a printed copy. It is a matter of great pride to me to have any word of mine concerning the world’s supremest heroine honored by a place in that Museum” [MTP: Paine’s 1917 Mark Twain’s Letters, p.789].

Fatout lists Sam for a dinner speech, possibly sometime in Feb. 1906, at the General Miles Dinner in N.Y.C. [MT Speaking 674]. Note: Gen. Nelson Appleton Miles (1839-1925), medal of honor recipient for his service in the Civil War at Chancellorsville; he also was in the Indian Wars and the Spanish-American War.  

Burr McIntosh Monthly (NY) ran Paul Thompson’s article “Men of Note: Samuel Langhorne Clemens,” p. 49. Tenney: “A short, conventional biographical sketch. On the facing page is a photograph of MT, ‘copyright by Marceau, Boston’” [“A Reference Guide Third Annual Supplement,” American Literary Realism, Autumn 1979 p. 190].
