Hi, John,

According to Paul Baender's What Is Man? and Other Philosophical Writings (U
of CA Press, 1973), Paine dated this piece as 1890 and confirms that the
paper it is written on was paper Twain was using between 1889 and 1891.
Baender also says that the title is Paine's rather than Twain's (591).
