I, too, just finished Carkeet's article in the Smithsonian.  I did 
enjoy it, mainly; however, I was disappointed by Terrell Dempsey's 
unfortunate comments about Twain and Hannibal.

Subject: Carkeet article in Smithsonian

If it was mentioned here already, I missed it.  I just read -The 
TwainShall Meet- in the April 2014 Smithsonian magazine (my favorite.)  
It wasfun to read since Ihope I might be somewhere on the Mississippi 
after a trip to New Orleans inFebruary.Two details in it I didn't 
remember ever hearing before.  One was themention of a young Samuel 
Clemens applying for a stipend from someAbolitionists and the other 
that he once was a stowaway on a river boatwhen he was young.If any of 
you missed the article by David Carkeet, I recommend that youcheck it 
out at Arianne Laidlaw
