This answers nobody's question and raises another. As it happens a friend
of mine is working on a screenplay about Tesla. He recently contacted me
for any information I had about Twain's association with the fabled
scientist. Alas, I have found nothing except a passing reference in Paine's
_Mark Twain a Biography_ . Anybody have any suggestions? Thanks, Barry
