I am posting this message on behalf of a researcher in England who said she 
had trouble posting to the list. Replies should be sent to her, but I am 
sure we would all like to see them, too. Beginning message:

Dear Mark Twain Forum,

I'm an academic in England attempting to put together a Collected Letters of 
G. K. Chesterton.

I've discovered that Chesterton was a Vice President of the International 
Mark Twain Society when it was founded. It seems possible that he therefore 
wrote them at least a couple of letters.

However, the International Mark Twain Society is now very hard to find any 
trace of: I have already discovered that it is NOT the American Mark Twain 
Circle. But I can't believe that the International Mark Twain Society simply 
disappeared with the death of Cyril Clemens (who founded it),  in 1999  - 
and that all its records were then destroyed.

So - do any of you know what became of the International Mark Twain Society 
and whether it has any archives that I could search?

With thanks and best wishes,

Dr. Emma Wilson
