The August issue of Review of Reviews included a piece by William Thomas Stead, “Character Sketch: Mark Twain,” p. 122-33.

Includes several photographs of MT, including one ‘taken in 1890 by Peter Mapes Dodge’ (Apparently at Onteora, New York—T.A.T.) Also appeared in Review of Reviews, Australian ed., in September…” [27; MTCI 320-29].
