For the record, so nobody misunderstands, Tracy needlessly apologized to me
off-list for his joke, which I thought was not bad at all. Pretty good, in
fact. And for the record, I did send him only the image of Twain --who sits
on the left of the page in that journal facing off against Hans Breitmann,
who looks little like Tracy, except that Hans parts his hair on the left. If
Judith can't easily lay hands on her own scan of that dynamic duo, I'll
happily rescan the both of them from my original.

Sorry for the reply all, folks. I blame my lack of sleep (and thus my
baby) for the forgetfulness and my bad joke to Judith. I, too, am one of
those Twain people. I admit.
And thanks for all the help offered with illustrations.
