This is Paul Fatout's attribution in "Mark Twain Speaking"; however,
I've been doing some research on MT's involvement with the Saturday
Morning Club of Hartford and, as it turns out, the talk he gave to the
group in Boston on 15 April 1882 was "Mental Telegraphy," not "Advice
to Youth." I haven't yet been able to determine where/when he gave
the "Advice" speech.
