I am trying to find a source for something I read somewhere but failed to write down. My dimming memory remembers this: "In [some date in the 20s], Albert Bigelow Paine stated confidently that with the publication of [insert some Twain volume Paine edited] that no new Mark Twain work need now be published." I can see it in my mind's eye, but I didn't write it down, and I can't find it in any source, nor can I find Paine saying it in one of his edited works. I want to use it as the lead in a chapter, but now I am stuck. I plan to check again tomorrow, but thought I would enlist the aid of our fine list--and anyone who locates this will earn my gratitude, as well as a beverage of choice. Thanks! +++++++++++++++ John Bird mailto:[log in to unmask] http://www.birdnest.org/birdj The Tao of the Mandolin: http://www.access1.net/birdj Have you played your mandolin today?
