Barbara Schmidt has added two interesting and otherwise
difficult to find resources to her expanding collection of
newspaper coverage of Mark Twain and his own journalism:

"Mark Twain in the _Daily Hawaiian Herald_" includes all nine items
related to or written by Twain that appeared in the short-lived daily
newspaper in the fall of 1866.  Among these is the paper's report on
Twain's "Sandwich Islands" speech in which it predicts that "his
forthcoming work will show that he has been an industrious collator
of facts."

"Mark Twain's Correspondence with the _San Francisco Alta
California_," the 26 "American Travel" letters written from
January to August 1867

These pages, Barb's collection of quotations, and her massive "Mark
Twain in the _New York Times_" collection, now covering 1867-1959,
can also be accessed from her main Twain page at

Kevin Bochynski alerted me to the new "Teacher's Guide to the Signet
Classics Edition of Mark Twain's The Prince and the Pauper," by Wendy
Patrick Cope, Buckingham County High School, Buckingham, Virginia,
online through the Academic Resources section of the Penguin Books
web site at

The Internet Movie Database has expanded its list of film versions of
Twain's works.  It now provides information about 40 of them,
from the 1909 silent films _The Prince and the Pauper_ and _The Death
Disk_ to the recent Disney productions.  The list can be accessed at:
