Friends,  my copy of "Letters From The Earth"  has arrived.  This message is
to warn all who have weightier matters at hand that I am now dangerously
equpped with insoucient armament.

In order to defray the intellectual expense that might otherwise be exacted
from those of you with loftier ideals and expectations,  I propose to adopt
a recognizable " nom de plume"; a sobriquet that will readily identifiy me
as an interloper in the hallowed halls of truth, beauty, and syllogism.

I offer this warning in loyal and good faith to all in hopes that the others
of my " unwashed" faith will rally to happy discussion of Mr. Clemens
bemusing scribblings without fear of analysis , nor, academic scrutiny.  To
this end,  I propose to sign myself, " The Janitor" in all future
communications to this forum.

 Thus, perhaps will a table be provided for the menials,  while the elite
pursue higher  goals for the erudition and benefit of all.

The Janitor.
