After having read three biographies of Twain, I cannot help but believe that
the entire Twain family would have  been much better and closer had Livy
lived.  For all Clemens' genius, he could not hold the family together.  I
especially believe that Jean would have been much better cared for by her
mother and perhaps would not have come to such an untimely death.  How do
you feel about this?
Thank you.
