Try the Unversity of California's 1979 _The Works of Mark Twain: Early
Tales and Sketches, Vol. 1, 1851-1864_ for work written under several
names other than Snodgrass.

_The Adventures of Thomas Jefferson Snodgrass_ was published in 1925.
The three T.J.S.letters it contains are scheduled to be reprinted
(some day) with the travel writings by the U. of Cal.

Clemens did not write the Quintus Curtius Snodgrass letters, according to
_The Mark Twain Encyclopedia_.
