Dear Aaron,

"An Entertaining Article" appeared in the Buffalo _Express_ and also in
the _Galaxy_.  If you don't have access to McElderry's _Galaxy_ text, it
appears in _Mark Twain at the Buffalo Express_ (McCullough and
McIntire-Strasburg).  MT at the Buffalo Express also contains "A Sad, Sad
Business," in which Twain 'fesses up, admitting that he was the author of
the piece.
