Dear Group:
When I saw Holbrook as Twain, he related a story about being approached by
an insurance agent which happened when he was living in Hartford
Connecticut.  To say the least, I was frustrated because I could not
understand the punch line, but people up in the balcony were laughing.  I
asked those around me, even people behind me, if they understood it but they
did not.  Does anyone know such a story, and if anyone has access to "Mark
Twain Tonight", have you read it?
Thank you.
