I was reading a history of the 1893 Chicago Columbian Exposition and it
stated that Mark Twain was going to visit the fair but never made it. He
got to Chicago but had so many misadventures that he left without
visiting the fair . It also stated that he wrote a short story/essay
about these misadventures. What was the name of this story and is it
readily available in some easy to find collection?
