February – Sometime during the month Sam dined with William James, who wrote to his brother Henry James afterward: “Poor man, only good for monologue, in his old age, or for dialogue at best, but he’s a dear little genius all the same” [J. Kaplan 379].

The first edition of Christian Science, with Notes Containing Corrections to Date was published in February, 1907; two copies were deposited with the Copyright Office on Feb. 7 [Hirst, “A Note on the Text” Afterword materials p.13, Oxford ed. 1996].

Sometime after the release of CS, an unidentified person wrote to him about the book: “Wishing you success in your good work of shining the absurdities and hypocrisies of Christian Science” [MTP]

Sam signed his photo to an unidentified person [MTP: Maggs Bros. catalog, No. 1257, Item 38].

Stuart Gould’s article, “Samuel L. Clemens” ran in Broadway Magazine (later Hampton’s Broadway Magazine) for Feb. [Tenney 44].
