A Heads Up: Unfortunately John Pascal has had to drop out of the American Humor panel at RMMLA in Vancouver. Rats!

On a long airline flight today, I gave a critical read to Ed Branch's article from MLA, October 1978, on Artemus Ward relative to his influence on Twain. "The Babes in the Wood": Artemus Ward's "Double Health" to Mark Twain.
Makes me look forward to hearing John Pascal's talk at the RMMLA in Vancouver,since his panel conflicted with mine in Elmira.
But a question: Can anyone tell me? Did Twain ever attend a lecture by J.
Ross Browne, or comment on Browne or his letters from Washoe?
