Dear Group:
I've heard and read that Mark Twain smoked something to the tune of "48
cigars" a day.  Is this an exaggeration?  Was this one of Twain's
stretchers?  In speaking with avid cigar smokers, they cannot imagine
how anyone could manage to smoke so many cigars, unless he didn't sleep
for more than four or five hours.  I'm glad I wasn't Livy.  I wouldn't
want to have embraced someone reeking of cigar!
