Very exciting, John.
Howells and Twain; what a pair.
A few references are made in my upcoming book, A New Orleans Author in Mark
Twain's Court: Letters from Grace King's New England Sojourns.
One of King's letters tells about her climbing with the Clemenses up to
Howells's third floor apartment in Stuyvesant only to find that his
lackadaisical daughter was the only one home and then their running into
Howells at a restaurant later that day where the two men greeted each other
like joyful boys.
A far more somber letter from Howells thanks King for her compliments on
his tribute "My Mark Twain."
I'm looking forward to having the time to bask in your reading.
