Hi folks, Wes Britton here, once very active in this community. Over the
past few years, I keep discovering just how much of my old scholarship is
missing from my files. I know some of my articles are in scholarly libraries
but I no longer have any access to any of them.


So iffen any of you can e-mail me digital versions of any of the items
below, I'd be mightily grateful:

Anti-imperialism." Mark Twain Studies 2 (Japan), 2006.


"Mark Twain 'Cradle Skeptic': High Spirits, Ghosts, and the Holy Spirit."
