T. Williams was almost certainly Thomas Marion Williams. His calling
card with his New York address penciled on the back (204-W-96th) is in
the Mark Twain Papers. On the front, where his name is printed,
Clemens has written: "He's a fool. Webster could always select a
fool." Beyond that we have not gone, or perhaps need to go.
On the other hand, anything Barb finds out about True W. Williams will
be of great interest to the editors here in the Mark Twain Project.
We know almost nothing about him beyond what Clemens, Orion, and
sometimes Bliss have said in their several letters.
