Tracy; I must have this one:

Mark Twain at the Tomb of Adam, Harper's May 1875, p. 848

somewhere;  where exactly is the question.  I'm hunting around in my files,
more later.

ps: as Wolfgang says, I'm shocked to hear of something Kevin does not own,
other than a Gutenberg Bible and the complete Audubon volumes of Birds of
America (last I checked it was the highest auction price ever for any
book).  Shocked, I say.
